Interview: Stefan Petrunov
Luca Curci – Do you agree with our vision of art and what you think about the theme of the festival?
Stefan Petrunov – Yes, it’s very actual and inspiring. Visions are at the beginning of everything.
L.C. – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
S.P. – It’s connected as a visional example of an exotic image from the exotic parts of the world.
L.C. – What role does the artist have in society? And the art?
S.P. – In my view, the role an artist has in society is very important,
and it’s not just being a decorator. Artist means to be very observable
and sensitive in everything around, trying to create and establish his
own artistic world and showing his view of life.
