The awesome EURO-VISION spot we collaborated on as part of an amazing team of international artist gathered together by Vico Sharabani, our friend, owner and Creative Chief of the The-Artery New York, is an honoree in Video: Animation category at this years The Webby Awards !!!
All the authors of individual segments were invited to represent their countries of origin in the famous Eurovision Song competition, so our Chief Creative Aleksandar Djordjevic played with an idea of honoring architectural and cultural heritage of his ancestral homeland of Serbia.
His vision was to juxtapose the post-modern brutalist monument architecture of post-WW2 socialist society, with the traditional and very unique mountain villages, and weave it all together under one of the most present symbols often seen on ancient Serbian “Pirot kilim”-style rugs – the turtle (“Корњача” – in Serbian.).
We are overjoyed and a little mind-blown with the nod, it was such an honor to collaborate as artists and make a piece of this puzzle with this great group of artists!!!
