Finally, a blog I came across and looks like a great source of information and ways to get better.



Depression or trauma is a dirty word where I grew up. It’s not only a sign of weakness but a symptom of self-pity, exaggerating tendency and a drama seeking personality. Essentially, a sign of a bad character.

That needs to change.

Not A Target

As a reflection to recent events connected to police brutality and extensive usage of guns in the USA, I created a street art project called “Not A Target”.

I select various places around the city and use them as my canvas and a messenger.

My view is that No Body should be used as a shooting target. If that is the current state, we need to bring change.


Walk A Mile In My Shoes

“If I could be you, if you could be me for just one hour.
Before you abuse, criticize and accuse, Walk a mile in my shoes”

We are inviting you to visit and take part in a unique interactive exhibition
enhancing its traditional visual presentation with audio experience.
“Walk A Mile In My Shoes”  features conceptual portraits by Czech photographer Adela Wagner accompanied by a musical art piece by Kimberly Venetz  which opens a dialogue about gender roles, exploring their forms, limitations and the social pressure to fit into them.
