MOTTO “Become the artistic creator of your existence!”
Εvery artist's introversion - which of course is the primary driving force to creativity - due to the peculiarities of life time, should be united in a "conspiracy" for co-creation. In order to enlighten our living path, we should all, from time to time, choose by the selective pieces we keep inside us and see through artworks, in order to make our own unique patchwork of an integrated entity that will contribute to our life's successful flow. In that way, we may become the artistic creators of our existence!
