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 vanya as a tramp. the main idea of the project as of the artist paints people's portraits in return for some carrots things like. supplies or things that might be useful for traveling 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.
that much so that 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. i like it a lot. now i don't think about money. to shift and well this journey is like you know what about seeing the world if the kind of a business trip. it's a mission 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 chicago on ham is through the intent that i read his blog 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 but still may be he has decided to choose some other direction. we still are now and. i couldn't make it to give gagne 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 our school dmitri offered to give me a ride we've known each other for about seven years already. you have one hundred m. 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. to educate you how from the internet it was also an exchange a gift from st petersburg for everything is traded trousers to discard. the old. days portraits is it actually art. well kind of game in some sense. if it's all very subjective someone considers it art. other calls it nonsense. i don't care what it's called. i just like living this way. how are you are you alone
let's go together ok let's go. 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 gem. 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've got to know me about a year and a half ago. she find 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 chatter. 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 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 we just have to get by while travelling 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 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 thing i got the idea to organize it as an art project which is what i. said i started to get letters which. one of them was from a couple that was going to get married and want to 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 adesa to stumble they agreed and as a result we have 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 here 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 but 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 here by. ha ha it's us. if this is and you come on in nice to me. i'm married now. that's what i live so this is what we traded for sex do you like fruit the fruit. sure i did. as oranges some sort of tea ok let's have some tea bowls all healthy. or near the given i am really interested in his story i miss a salad just i study those living on the margins sometimes i think that only
superhumans a crazy people can live like this some breakfast people you know but he's ok a guy who stands firmly on his feet and who is certain in his actions in the house 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 that i knew. how do you done for yourself in society. who are you 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. 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. i hope she trusts her mind more than her feelings. will eventually get a travel passport just in case there was
