that a tramp artist had painted the minister of culture. with. 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 and said the artist paints people's portraits in return for some goods 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 forwards with 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. 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 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 while i am a little worried about the fact that he has stopped painting which he probably thinks he doesn't have the talent for it along but still maybe he has decided to choose some other direction would. we still there now and. i couldn't make it to pure water and give guinea as wedding but i still managed to congratulate them for me 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 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. to educate you how from the internet 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. well kind of game in some sense. if it's all very subjective someone considers it art and. because that nonsense. you know that i don't care what it's called. i just like living this way. to the face how are you
are you alone let's go together ok let's go. right. up. to one hundred well if the girls were more attentive they would have probably noticed this portrait is nothing like the way paintings are meant to be done so that's probably why they brought me jam. or he 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 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. 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 cuba with him which i believe that you should take any chances your life gives you i would feel bad if i didn't go when 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 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 thing i got the idea to organize it as an art project which is your job. but i started to get letters each. 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 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 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 done 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 hope it works out. ok we can walk there from the beatles here by. ha ha it's us while if this is on your money and nice to meet here i'm sorry now. that's what i heard you so this is what we traded for. do you like fruit the fruit of sure i did well and i am as oranges some sort of tea ok let's have some tea bowls all healthy. or near the game 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 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 trades but also from the mass media that i knew. 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.
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 of me. i hope she trusts her mind more than her feelings. don't know if it's going to get a travel passport just in case she oversees maybe i'll join me someday and we'll
i would rather ask questions for people in positions of power instead of speak on their behalf and that's why. you can find my show larry king now right here on our t.v. question more. look right from the street. first street. and i think that you're. on our reporters let her go an instagram looks to me and not knowing the song look.
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 the present you know went through. the kids incidentally in a desa 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 for so i'm here finally. i'm trying to find the exact street. name of google 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 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 he's a cyclist we are going to rome by bike from there. school is another chance meeting in the airport. i'm going that way ok.

kind of present is the most useful to us dried fruits nuts raisins they're all full of energy so i had to do the pot well done. just. because it was a good idea to bring you here would make you can be my supervisor of the. spiritual leader and you were. of the shuttle will be in charge of food actually are already right kind of. going to try downhill now the most difficult part is going off site. 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 the pier it's better to use first to first to 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 it 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 when 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. right i want to balance it. 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 we use 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 you know he doesn't want to be a slave here. and
then i knew just sit yourself down to some tea and start to paint. a start i have to paint you first we had a deal and remember to find someone. to find someone you have to do something first i mention i'm not here what would you do them the same thing i've done the last month and a half. it's good. you blame me now i'm not blaming you know. 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 you know what check for wife. and you have to do anything for me he doesn't want anything from me i was the one
going to buy it or. just paint without the food or water the. that's not food it's chips. and we have normal food your friendship well i want chips or you're going to do if i want chips but it's of stop wanting. i can control my wishes and desires you know. that's what. i think desiring and it will go away. i feel hungry my stomach told me about that. me sit down. sit up straight. sure just don't fidget it's just we have to get used to each other and what i think he's a little disappointed about the bossa thing because we're still spending
a lot of money and he doesn't like it i can get you 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 start a life without a penny. much. 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 why i'm going to spend it now. i'm going to book the most expensive hotels. but the most expensive restaurants. are terrible picture. i just like your joke. i don't think so goes a great artist. but i don't think it's a con man award it doesn't cheat and if you don't like the painting give anything it's up to the person. i asked him to buy t.
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. it together. you have to plan it all in advance friend so you ask me may the board you ask me to make a port that i made that i ask. for this where is my duty. for ports. i made it. it's for gift not for free. sure you get used to people's attention very quickly 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. 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. oh. music is our job the army our destiny these soldiers don't know what real arms look like but it didn't take them a single shots to conquer the world.
