I was born in 1992. I live in a beautiful country Serbia, former Yugoslavia. When I was a child I loved to watch cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Duck Amuck and other Warner Brothers heroes. When I was 5 years old one of my favorite movies from childhood was Space Jam with a big star Michael Jordan. My parents then told me that he is a big basketball star in America and he plays for Chicago in NBA. I decided that I want to be a great basketball star when I grow up. When I was 12 I started to listen to a rap music, which also comes from the streets of America. I played basketball for a few years until I had to stop because of health. Because I realized that I will never become NBA superstar I decided to go into the arts. My grandfather is a painter and my father is graphic designer so, by the basketball, I've always been interested in arts and I said "I'm gonna be a famous artist".


Years passed, I finished High School for Arts, as well as the Academy of Arts. In the meantime, I learned a lot of European and American culture. I fell in love with architecture, large powerfull buildings, jazz and funk music. Whatever it interested me and whatever I liked it was originated from America. Of course, there is another story about my passion in Europian culture. Today I'm 23 years old man and I finally came to one of my life goals. For the first time in America, I came to Chicago to work for a few months. I said "I'm 23 and I came to Chicago to ball like a Jordan". It's such a good feel when I put my headphones on, play the music and walk down the streets in this jungle of buildings. I'm just happy because I think that I'm on the right way to realize my dreams. One of my hobbies is photography so this short story is all about to let you know why am I so proud because of this few photos that I want to show you. I just want you to see what I see. Enjoy!
