we are continuing to follow the breaking news. alexander's family. here's a. great thing that. he had read or found a lad there's a story made for a movie is playing out in real life. everything was fine until the moment i came to sing for opal. local journalists wrote that a tramp artist had painted the minister of culture. from which the media reacted immediately. saying that ukrainian
papers had dared to call a famous painter from boeing is a tramp. the main idea of the project as of the artist paints people's portraits in return for some goods things like fruit supplies or things that might be useful for travelling he doesn't use any money at all today is the twentieth day of my journey around the world for all those twenty days i haven't spent any money at all.
every person can evaluate my art the way they want or i do not set any price some will give a roll of toilet paper for it to another will present a laptop or i like it a lot. now i don't think about money. and well this journey is you know what about seeing the world in the kind of a business trip. that i put to myself but i act. the project won't succeed if i stay in the same place all the time it will fail.
yet the only way to check up on ham is through the intent that i read his blogs all of us hope it will result in something serious at the end of the day. but at the moment you could say they were just watching. i am a little worried about the fact that he has stopped painting. he probably thinks he doesn't have the talent for it along the beach though maybe he has decided to choose some other direction. we still there now and. i couldn't make it to pure water i knew of guinea as wedding but i still managed to congratulate them i made it to the wedding photo shoot painted their portraits and headed to the city of study ask all dimitri offered to give me a ride we've known each other for about seven years already. you have one hundred in but from the cross the globe right yes. from here mostly right now russians
most of the info is being spread in russian my blog is in russian. where do you get your house from. but it was also an exchange a gift from st petersburg. everything is traded trousers to the scarf. you know. all those portraits is it actually art. what kind of game in some sense. if it's all very subjective someone considers it art and. because the nonsense. you that i don't care what it's called. i just like living this way. with a superstar how are you are you alone let's go together ok let's go. right.
well if the girls were more attentive they would have probably noticed that this portrait is nothing like the way paintings are meant to be done so that's probably why they brought me jam. in my. work ok how long does a painting take about six minutes and do the subjects recognize themselves afterwards i still don't think i am skilled enough to speak about the sketching technique sometimes it looks similar sometimes it doesn't that's why i do two
paintings usually the person chooses the one they like the most and i keep the other one it goes into my own collection of portraits. then you got to know me about a year and a half ago. she phoned my blog and began reading at both but when i wrote there above my plans to travel she wrote back to me. in her message she invited me to visit simferopol it was fun to chapter. and then one day i don't remember when exactly or if she was joking. she said she could actually go with me to dinner. and then i said ok let's go together then i feel close to him which
we have the same ideas i feel good around him it was the main reason for me to go to kiev with him which i believe that you should take any chances your life gives you i would feel bad if i didn't say i strongly believe it's better to do something and probably regret it later than not to do it at all and feel sorry about that afterwards. while traveling in china i went to shanghai i felt i could live there it was the moment the project actually started a russian girl living on the floor below me was going to leave. one day i came to see her and noticed an easel there i was looking for one of the time. so i asked her to sell it to me but she didn't want to do that but it was a friend's gift apparently. that is why i offered to swap for it instead i gave
her a painting in exchange for the easel it was my first barter so good when i got the idea to organize it as an art project. i started to get letters from each. one of them was from a couple that was going to get married and wanted back kind of portrayed as a wedding present for themselves. but i had already left odessa so they're asked if i could do it over skype the story is just they told me they could give me all i need for my travel in return. so i asked if they could pay for the tickets from a deficit to stumble they agreed and as a result we had a skype portrait session now and waiting on the tickets. if i decided to take annie as a hostage and go together to some other place but i feel she
can bring me luck. she's studying to be an art critic and it might be good practice for she can learn how to organize these kinds of projects. i hope she won't regret spending her time with such a con man as me. after our talk yesterday we feel that you are more interested in taking part in the documentary than in an exchange with us we are sorry to turn down your request but with i'm with you i got that message from person who invited me to kiev i received this morning just as i was about to leave. alone marina this is sergei bahl over the painter. well here's the problem we don't have a place to stay and i have no idea what to do you hope it works out. ok we
can walk there from the beatles see here by. ha ha it's us while if this is in yemen and nice to me. i'm sorry. so this is what we traded for. do you like fruit the fruit. sure i did and i'm as oranges some sort of tea ok let's have some tea bowls all healthy. near the day when i am really interested in his story i am s.s.a. ologist i study those living on the margins sometimes i think that only super humans a crazy people can live like this some reckless people you know but he's ok a guy who stands firmly on his feet and who is certain in his actions. i was kind of
amazed the project was a lot of interest not only from regular guys and girls who wanted to get their part traits but also from the mass media. how do you done for yourself in society. who are you that you don't make any money this sort of philosophy seems dangerous to me. quite a few people think i am a parasite like i don't do anything but i have it all for free maybe it's a way to become a famous artist. well yet to be a successful artist you have to be famous but i'm not interested in all that so much i don't care about what is going to happen to my paintings after i die i live for today that's all i care about i want to enjoy it now. that there is it take it to him off super thank you so much. ok see
you. ali. going to live women have always played an important role in my life and i appreciate all they do with the goodness of annie and i have talked about it and we've decided to leave things the way they are. i don't want her to quit studying because me. she trusts her mind more than her feelings. if no one thinks we can get a travel passport just in case maybe i'll join me someday and we'll continue the projects that i'm in now i don't think so i've got to stop.

a great mom after the divorce i felt i had nothing to loose so i left. it was pointless to stay there only to be able to see my child once a week it was wrong. so i left. i try not to hold on to the past and get lost enough to feel bad about it i also try not to dream about the future too much. but i try to live in that exact day and create a present to you that went through. to the incidentally in a desk i might have the chance to meet my grandfather i've never met him in my life
we'll see my dad's father is a songwriter he writes patriotic lyrics he's. told hello how are you so i'm here finally. i'm trying to find the exact street. name of pulo i was a bit worried about him when. he is quite old has some health problems and had a stroke recently. we met and i even painted several portraits of the audience i kept one for myself. just up on the tenth of march so i have to be in istanbul i have an appointment there i'm eating a very special person the famous traveler risler on my boat although with these a

like a let's see the queen's visit ukrainian stuff yes. but by the way this kind of present is the most useful to us dried fruits nuts raisins they're all full of energy so i have to do the pot well done. that i was a good idea to bring you here if you can be my supervisor of the. i'll be your spiritual leader and you were. will be in charge of food here actually are already right kind of. good let's ride downhill now the most difficult part is going up the side. we're going down so you have to adjust the gear it's to live shifted by gear and don't
rush it depends on the hill here it's better to use first of first or second let's try once again let's try and. what you describe something to eat i'm starving i've got no energy. yeah i have an m.b.a. from america will be what i used to be a white collar worker and a top manager in some of the big companies. now this is another stage of my life. i ride a bicycle down my main goal is to make other people see that there is an alternative way of life. and true but i don't consider a beautiful here not at all or farm it's bad for your health because of the exhaust fumes and kind of dangerous because of the traffic.
let's find a hotel. only if you find a place to stay for free you didn't. know it was your task. i can do that only if we go less than fifty kilometers a day would you see such a long journey takes all your energy and there is no way to do something else afterwards to be sure but we have to write the blogs and paint. write all about it we're go out and then upload it that's right and i just don't want to move. today there was no training so we have to use our reserves. it will be used to being a leader he's used to controlling and planning his dreams and making them come true now we're looking for compromise i mean trying to feel each other because it's kind of a leader follow a situation where you know he doesn't want to be a slave here. and
then a new just sit yourself down to some tea and start to paint a true star i have to paint you first we had a deal and remember like you find someone. to find someone you have to do something first you mention i'm not here what would you do them the same thing i've done the last month and a half. good. you blame me now i'm not blaming here. it's just the second day already we have to find an optimal solution we will sun is shining the weather is beautiful we arrived early right we should be having fun not fighting do you think i know what to do now no one checks your wife or.
and appears to give choice so with the help yourself. but it's useless to paint for food if you're going to buy it where. people stand just fine without the food or water the. that's not food it's chips love is the money we have normal food your friendship my oh i want chips. you're going to do if i want chips but it's one thing. i can control my wishes and desires you know. i think desiring and it will go away. i feel hungry my stomach told me about that. me sit down. sit up straight. straight sure just don't fidget it's just we have to get used to each other and war
i think he's a little disappointed about the thing because we're still spending a lot of money and he doesn't like it i can i mean i spend it but it is mine so he shouldn't worry about that right. ok let's spend it all quickly. and then start a life without a penny. much so. you had your own experience with all that didn't you didn't you spend all your money in shanghai more or less. that's what i'm going to spend it now. i'm going to the most expensive hotels. but the most expensive restaurants. are terrible picture. i just like a joke. i don't think is a great artist. but i don't think it's a con man of war. like the painting i just kind of given
a thing it's up to the person. i asked him to buy tea for the painting he seemed to understand but then he went away. well. it's a tough job you have to take a risk just to get some food it's not difficult it's just not the way usually do things so how do you do. together. you have to plan it all in advance friends so you ask me may the ports you ask me to make a port that i made that i ask to keep for this where is my duty. for ports it's. i made it's. a lovely city it's for gifts not for free. sure you get used to people's attention very quickly but the people around me usually help organize it all but nobody knows me so things are
a bit different. i don't know what it means to escape from yourself. quite the opposite i am trying to find myself and i am happy to feel all the changes because they are positive but i still have a lot to work on there are lot of changes to come this is my way and when i feel it is ok i will share that feeling of happiness with other people.
