From an art exhibition, few weeks ago... Surrealism in Macedonia, in the past 75 years of artistic life, so to speak.

I'm very impressed by that art exhibition, George.
Many great works of art, some of them really disturbing!

So you work in a bookshop? Seems a good place to be with your culture, and I'm sure clients never stay without good informations from you

The Surrealism in Macedonia seems a fabulous chapter of this movement in the world as a whole, and I will look for more details, because enjoyed very much the creativity of local artists

A walk near the Aqua park, at this part of the year it looks kind of abandoned...

This is the parking in front of the sport hall Boris Trajkovski:



The Aqua park:















The pedestrian bridge and the hospital Acibadem Sistina:





The Meteorological Institute at the top of the hill:



The industrial zone nearby:

Very interesting artworks in that surrealism exhibition, George. I'm particularly intrigued by the second one, which I'll call "18+." Any idea who the artist is?

Yes, his name is Atanas Botev and I'm proud to say that I know him personally, we hang out from time to time. His is one of the best (relatively) young artists in Macedonia (his around 40 years old).

This is his page if you are interested in more of his very provocative art:

atanasbotev.com

Thanks for all the comments, everyone!

Very nice set, George. My favourite is #2455.3, the reflected bridge. Season's greetings from Dundas.

Public and private hospital. On the left, we see the public hospital "8th of September" and on the right side we see the "Zan Mitrev" private hospital.

The recently restored Ishak-bey mosque. It dates back from the Ottoman times (it was built in 1438).
