Mural description and CV

“My mission is to inspire communities around the world to think bigger than themselves, to take in and cherish all they have in their roots and with this in mind think globally.
Traditions and old craft was always a great inspiration for me- not only for the visual beauty of it, but also the fact that this connects people, always created sort of personal peace for me. 
I started “e PLURIBUS UNUM “ mural project in 2020 during covid shut down and social unrest in Chicago. 
As an immigrant I wanted to inspire people and communities to pause the rage for a second and look deep inside of themselves. To find who they really are and what do they as individuals bring to the table. To cherish one another and OUR DIFFERENCES. To unite and be as one “out of many, ONE”
I painted first mural in most deverse neighborhood in Chicago, UPTOWN, where I live… than I pushed my project to Chicago downtown, Miami Florida Design District. Last summer I painted a mural for the city I grow up in, Pirot, in Serbia. 

And I am honored to be here, to have opportunity to learn about Sicilian traditions and craft. 
Embroidery is what captured my interest the most-and this is why I incorporated it in my work. I wanted you to see it when you pass by and remember how important the work of hands is, and to cherish and pass this to the young generations-this will deepen the connection and make us stronger!a strong. And only together, strong we can make a difference in the world.
-out of many,one-
