Last Two Years

Nowadays I am working on projects with social, political and economical connections, frequently approaching them trough situations from my personal life.

In the last two years the country where I live became a strange place, where besides the undemocratic way of conduction, you can find hilarious and absurd things happening, what you are not able to believe.

I'm planning to make a drawing-book, collecting, documenting, analyzing the happenings of the last two years. These drawings will deal with political pressure, social exclusion, political image building, and economical questions in concrete and explicit way.
