It's really none of my business but I think you must be misinterpreting parts of the article, Nikola. It's all good and positive. A writer who writes about someone's artwork writes about their interpretation of the work. We can't expect anything else. And when the results of that interpretation are positive, regardless of whether they conform to whatever ideas you may have had when you created the work, then there really is nothing to complain about. Keep in mind that Brian is from a very different cultural background than you and, for this reason, it's perfectly understandable that he has a very different perspective on things.

I've never been to Belgrade and have no idea how things are there. But I have traveled a lot and never have I ever heard that it is common practice anywhere for a writer to ask for permission before writing about someone's art work much less ask the artist to review an article before publication. That just doesn't make any sense at all.

I have no idea what it is that you're disappointed with and I can almost guarantee you that no one else is going to understand what the problem is seeing that what you've received here is a high profile, positive review of your work.

best regards,
Pall Thayer
