Nenad's Art Opening
I know two people from Serbia. This guy is Nenad. He is the tall one in the photograph. Nenad is a work scholar at the school where I work. I'm his boss! He makes us call him Nenade (Nen-nah-day) because he says it makes him sound more important. Nenade is funny. He is going home soon. I have been glad to know him, but he is always late for work and I have to yell and curse at him frequently. With his Serbian accent he always says, "Dax, I must tell you." He then proceeds to give this amazing excuse. The other Serbian I know was always late too! Hmmmm.
Nenede is a painter. Last night he had an art opening in the Mission. He takes frames from actual movies and paints them. The changes are subtle but his concepts are deep! He is currently working on a series that will be amazing. It will be twelve frames of a finger pulling a trigger. How many frames does it take to kill someone? Deep!
