A successful painter or a woman living a life of pain? A question that can change the answer no matter what window you look at. Actually, the answer to both is yes. But she also had an enviable life. Frida was a painter who set an example for everyone with her success in painting. Considering […]
Camp is Everywhere
Camp is everywhere, that’s what I thought of when I discovered the camp, certainly taken from the French “se camper” “to pose exaggeratedly” it designates something much broader than taking the pose. The Oxford English dictionary definition of 1909 paints a depraved portrait of camp aesthetics, “ostentatious, exaggerated, affected, theatrical; effeminate or homosexual”. Although Webster’s […]

Balkan Beats 40 – Art Is
Art is something that needs to have a meaning, a message. “Why?” I would ask.

Choosing Art as a Career
Here’s a challenge for you: keep track of how many times you hear someone encouraging a child to embrace Art as a future career. When it comes to Arts, in fact, there’s always a lot of social pressure on people willing to pursue it as a career. Italians, for instance, have a saying that goes like: “impara l’arte e mettila da parte” (lit. “learn art and put it aside”), and this isn’t very motivating… Our guest today is Mario D’Avino, doctor, psychotherapist, and theatre director. He’s the living proof that we can embrace more than one passion at a time and make a career out of it. With him, we discussed Art in school, the benefits of artistic self-expression, and how COVID-19 affected artists.
