Solo – group exhibition
Samo U la la !
1. 7. 2021–28. 8. 2021

The basic tendency to create works of art is always individualistic. It is born out of a personal reaction, escalated into artistic action, from a subjective point of view. This subjective level encapsulates all emotions, ideas, rationality, goals and values. Such art, unencumbered from all modern trends, is created by the self-made artist Samo.
