Director of Jewish Film Festival Zagreb, Branko Lustig produced many well known movies.
He received two oscars for producing Gladiator and Schindler's List. This year's 8th Festival of Tolerance - JFF Zagreb is dedicated to 20th anniversary of Schindler's List, with special guest Ralph Fiennes, one of the main actors of the movie.
I have always thought laziness is important for creativity. Maybe because I am lazy.
In 1977 I was lazy but I needed to do a comic for youth paper "Polet".
I tried to be clever and multiplied the same drawing with little adjustments,
just to look different, and then redrew little bit four of the drawings,
and in couple of hours I got myself a comic with sarcastic title "Born To Be Wild".
In 1983 I saw a poster - comic by Milton Glaser for "Mostly Mozart Festival" in Lincoln Center,
with the very same idea.
It is just a proof that all lazy minds think alike.
For the 2014 Whitney Biennial, artist Tony Tasset has chosen to take his Artists Monument
outside of the Museum’s galleries and present it in Hudson River Park, 17th Street between
Chelsea Piers and Pier 57. Just a few blocks away from my house!
The multicolored acrylic panels of Tasset’s Artists Monument are etched with the names
of 392,486 modern and contemporary artists, ranging from Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol
to emerging artists.
My name is inscribed twice. I'm not sure if that is because of my split personality,
or because I am twice the artist?
