“Those who seek power somewhere outside rather than within themselves should carefully look at the volcanoes! All the power is within you! And all you have to do is take it out!”

The news about anything to do with Corona is overwhelming - if one is on Twitter and Facebook alone it is already too much, add to that all the messages on Messenger, WhatsApp and other channels can make ones head explode.
Lately, I tried to make sense out of some of this, and somehow, a pattern emerged by putting it all in order.
I published a long blog on the Hive Blockchain, and I won't just copy it all over on this one,
but simply link to it (it is publicly available everywhere):

Just for the fun of it, I include some insane memes I found on Facebook, which are not part of the Hive blog. If anyone feel 'outed' or embarrassed about it, they should not have posted them.
A search on Facebook on thetopic of Corona would keep one occupied until the end of times.
Some serious, some funny, but most of it insanely dumb, particularly the comments.
âIt is possible, however, that the artist is both thin-skinned and prophetic and, like the canary lowered into the mine shaft to test the air, has caught a whiff of something lethal.â

I am honored to have one of my major drawings selected to be part of this large First Biennale of Fantastic Art in Serbia, (as one of two foreign guest artists, the other being Reinhard Schmid of Germany) to take place in Belgrade at the Kolarac gallery and later in Novi Sad at the Cultural center (where I exhibited before in a group show Antilogika Slike in 2015).
5 Years ago (2017) after I created this work at the Pigmalion Artist Colony - it is in the collection of the founder of Pigmalion, Gorazd Cuk who will lend it to this exhibition.
October 16th to October 31st 2021
On their website and even more on the Facebook page you see some work by my Serbian colleagues.
I featured the image of my drawing selected by the jury, EROS THANATOS II â check it out on my website, where you also find a zoom image to get all the details.
'Phoenix Collection MihajloviÄ'
'Phoenix Collection MihajloviÄ' is an imposing, family collection, lovingly selected authentic paintings and drawings, which in the right way represents the best contemporary artists in Serbia. It combines representative works of renowned artists of different generations and sensibilities, successors of cultural heritage - in favor of the traditional, fantastic but also out-of-appearance. The uniqueness of this collection, which includes over 140 oil paintings and more than 50 drawings, lies in the refined, careful selection of individual works, from the rich opuses of contemporary painters.
