How I found a balance
Recently I saw a deep sea photo of the fish in social media post. It has wide open mouth and many teeth. This brought a memories of the event early in my life.
Once in primary school on the art class I painted a large fish with big teeth. My art teacher got so exited and took painting to exhibit. I never saw painting. It felt sad but I forgot about all that for a long time.
It will be a decade after I got in love with mechanics but at same time obsessed with everything digital. It was not hard to find a balance for me personally but to join the direction where everything around me was going to. My free time I explored art.
One day I found myself spending my student summers in the factory with CNC machines and another in editor office of computer magazine Byte while applying on Art Academy. In the mean time I was professionally touching ground with apparel, enjoying my walkman, photographing the world and exploring minimalism as expression.
I co-found my first office / studio and became professional offering services. It is never easy. Being part of the nature recharged my batteries.
Productivity skyrocket in our graphic design / DTP studio. We were pumping up books like crazy and I was loosing it. In our region we took the opportunity and started pioneering large format digital printing, indoors & outdoors. Exhibitions, events and I get lost my other side, I became a digital junkie. My health was damaged. Sadness.
My better half helped to reorganize this mess and reinstate a balance. It was fresh start and reset replacing walkman for a camera and adding iPod. Tech helped to downsized a clutter. It was easier to make music and every device become ‘something multi’.
I am more focused on artistic element in my creations again. It helps to look the world around us – the nature. Does syncing ourselves means balancing at same time?
Some of my work through span of 30 years somehow being connected with children. Aren’t we all just kids?
Challenges making me more passionate. I am oriented to details.
