The artist's life - is a continuous work, including weekends, holidays, and even during sleep. Every day I am sketching the outline of my surroundings and that is how I fill up my visual library, it trains my visual memory, and the understanding of the surrounding world. Each time the details improves and I see something new.

This is really cool. What I love with the scientific method it is how the direct understanding of the world proportionally increases its mystique. I do not share the opinion that knowledge - makes life. Real knowledge - an understanding, and understanding - it's only possible through the awareness of your surroundings. For example an artist has the ability to generate new images.

In this project, each day I attach to the walls of this building, new sketches made the previous day. So you can see the completion of my visual library. Main lived experience, practice - it leaves a lasting mark inside, fixed in the brain just like on the walls of the room.

March 31 will be a meeting with the artist, summarizing: stories of interesting situations from the experience of painting in the street, etc.
