“I definitely do not feel as if my learning and exploring has been completed. There are many techniques of visual storytelling and painting that I still want to dive in. It’s the necessity of communication, of connecting to others, that triggers the creativity, and I hope to keep communicating. The aim of my experimental Million4art collaboration project was to design and test new models of financing art through the use of 21st century technology.”  Danijel Žeželj – visual artist.
