Artez at Revitalizacija Festival

Serbian street and urban artist Artez recently visited Užice, a city in western Serbia where he participated in Revitalizacija festival. The main goal of the event was to refresh the walls of the city located on the banks of the River Đetinja, so Artez created a thought-provoking new piece entitled What Is and What Will Be. The artist describes this piece:

“Still images give us the opportunity to take a good look at one frozen moment of time. It is not always easy to predict what is happening nor what will happen next. Sometimes we will guess right, many times we won’t. What is important is to imagine the future based on the information that was given to us. Story we come up with is not a story about the moment itself, rather it is a story about ourselves…”
