Pictezii, by Liviu Balint

Charlie Chaplin "Let Us All Unite" (Melodysheep)
O scena dintr-un film al marelui Charlie Chaplin, "The great dictator", care a fost mixata intr-o piesa muzicala. In original, Charlie Chaplin tine un discurs impotriva fascismului, insa ascultat astazi, cuvintele lui sunt la fel de actuale si mesajul sau de pace ar trebui sa ne puna pe ganduri: oare istoria a fost scrisa doar ca sa ne-o amintim, nu ca sa invatatm din ea?

EN: A scene from the movie "The great dictator", of the unique Charlie Chaplin, that has been mixed into a music play. In the original, Charlie Chaplin held a speech against fascism, but listened today, his words match the situation the world is in and his message should give us some thought: is history written only to remind us, not to teach us?

Slow and Steady







Zilele incep sa creasca si aduc cu ele mai multa energie. Ne lasam dezmierdati de soarele amiezii care imbie si pasarile sa isi reia trilurile prin varfurile brazilor.  Inceputul de an s-a desfasurat rapid si nu a lasat loc de plictiseala in atelierul Primitiv.
Mesterim cu spor si fiecare idee noua care prinde viata angreneaza dupa ea altele si altele. Ne bucuram amandoi cand drumul de la concept la obiect nu e in zadar si reusim sa cream ceva deosebit. Ne bucuram de oamenii minunati care ne sprijina, cred in noi si ne incurajeaza sa mergem inainte. Dar mai presus de orice ne bucuram sa lucram impreuna si sa impartasim aceeasi viziune.

EN: The days are starting to grow and they bring more energy. We let the noon sun to warm us, while it brings back to life the little singing birds. The beginning of the year went by fast and it didn't allow any boredom at Primitiv workshop.
We work hard and joyous and each new idea brings more and more new ones. We are both so happy when the path from concept to object gets us to a special creation. We are happy for the wonderful people that believe in us and push us forward.  But most of all, we are happy to be able to work together and share the same vision.



Un an de stat la tara ne-a adus aminte de lucrurile simple, cum  ar fi mancarea gatita afara, la foc si am facut o pasiune din turtitele coapte pe plita. E uimitor cum o ora de stat afara la foc, sub cerul instelat ne poate imbunatati starea de spirit.

EN: An year of country living reminded us of the simple things, like outdoor fire cooked food and we became addicted to flat bread baked on the grill. It's amazing how one simple hour of sitting next to the fire, under the starry sky can improve our mood.

I See Eyes





O fi soare, dar sa nu ne lasam pacaliti:) De fapt, pe noi, la munte, mai greu ne pacaleste caldura, pentru ca soarele, timid, de abia a inceput sa se arate de dupa munti. Oricum, zilele astea am pregatit echipamentul obligatoriu pentru vara ce (sigur) va sa vie: tricouri pictate si le-am mesterit cu gandul la mare si plaja:)

EN: It might be sunny, but let's not get fooled:) Actually, the heat can't play tricks with us, here, in the mountains, because the sun has just started to show itself behind the peaks. Anyway, these days I crafted the must have summer gear: hand painted T-shirts, made with the summer and sea side in mind:)
Pentru ca zilele tot scurte imi par si dupa lasarea serii cu greu ma motivez sa pictez (doar atunci cand e vreun deadline in joc), mi-am facut cadou o carte pe care am zarit-o intr-o librarie: "Trecute vieti de doamne si domnite. Cele mai frumoase istorii", scrisa de Constantin Gane. Mi-am daruit-o de Craciun, dar de abia acum am gasit ragaz sa ma apuc de citit, insa a meritat asteptarea. Subiectul cartii e istoria romanilor, privita prin prisma sotiilor si fiicelor de domnitori si barbati influenti care au condus teritoriul acestei tari, de-a lungul secolelor, incepand din jurul anului 1200. Nu e tocmai o lectura usoara, dar face istoria romanilor mult mai digerabila decat clasicele manuale intesate cu date.

EN: Because the days are still short and I can hardly motivate myself to paint after dark, I gifted myself with a book: "Past lives of ladies. The most beautiful histories" written by Constantin Gane. It is about the Romanian people's history seen through the eyes of the wives and daughters of the powerful men who ruled over this land.
