WHO IS ADA_MR AND WHEN DID YOUR CREATIVE JOURNEY BEGIN?

    ADA_MR. MY CREATIVE JOURNEY STARTED FROM THE EARLY DAYS.

DO YOU THINK THE CITIES WHERE YOU LIVED HAD AN IMPORTANCE ON YOUR CREATIVITY?

    GOOD QUESTION. IT IS PROVEN THAT SURROUNDING IS INFLUENCING ARTIST AND WHAT HE CREATES. I AM NO DIFFERENT. ONLY THING, I'VE SPENT 35 YEARS IN CAPITAL OF SERBIA. ONE ACQUAINTANCE HAD COMMENT THAT STILL ECHOES IN MY CONSCIOUSNESS - THATS WAY TO LONG PERIOD TO BE LIVING IN SAME SPOT. AND THE MORE TIME GOES, MORE RIGHT HE HAD. I WOULD LOVE TO GET OPPORTUNITIES TO MOVE AND WORK FROM SOME OTHER CITY LIKE DUBAI, VIENNA, AMSTERDAM, THESSALONIKI, KÖLN.

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF A CREATIVE CAREER SUCCESS?

    CREATIVE CAREER SUCCESS IS HAVING RECOGNIZABLE STYLE. SOME GET BLESSED BY IT EARLY, SOME SPEND WHOLE LIFE IN SEARCHING FOR IT. YOU CANT BUY ONE BY ANY PAYCHECK. ALSO, WORKING FOR SOME STUDIO AGENCY CLIENT IS LIKE PLAYING SPORT FOR ONE TEAM OR THE OTHER. BUT WHEN YOU LEAVE THAT TEAM, NO HISTORY STAYS BEHIND, OTHER THAN FEW ROWS IN OWN CV, AND NO ONE WILL CARE ABOUT IT IN THE FUTURE. SO ONLY THING THAT CAN DIFFERENTIATE ARTIST IS HAVING OWN STYLE.

WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA FOR AN ARTIST?

    INTERNET MADE OPPORTUNITIES. MADE ARTISTS AVAILABLE TO MARKET. MADE MARKET AVAILABLE TO ARTISTS. BROUGHT EVERYONE TOGETHER. SOCIAL MEDIAS (SM) CAN BRING A LOTS OF EXPOSURE TO ARTIST, AND LOTS OF COMMISSIONS IN RETURN. ITS A LIBERATION TECH, EVOLUTIONARY LEAP. AND ITS NOT EVEN THAT HARD TO FOLLOW THE RULES AND LAUNCH YOURSELF AND BRING BACK EYES TO YOUR WORK IN RETURN. ITS ASTONISHING, AND OBLIGATORY. SHOULD I MENTION THAT "BIG" CLIENTS EVEN CHECK YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWER COUNTERS BEFORE THEY HIRE YOU? THATS SOME OTHER SUBJECT. BUT IS TODAYS REALITY HOW SM CAN INFLUENCE ONES FUTURE.

WHAT'S YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA?

    I WAS DOING ART AND EXHIBITIONS LONG BEFORE MAINSTREAM SOCIAL NETWORKS APPEARED. USED INTERNET EVEN WITH 56K MODEMS. MYSPACE AND DEVIANTART WERE THE FIRST PLATFORMS TO FILL WITH CONTENT AND I HAD VERY LITTLE BACK THEN. BUT NO FACEBOOK, IG WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO PRESENT CREATIVE PROJECTS AS PORTFOLIOS. UNTIL BEHANCE CAME. SO I FOLLOWED UPS AND DOWNS OF MOST OF THEM. I COME FROM A SMALL COUNTRY WHICH FOLLOWS ANY TREND WITH LATENCY OF ABOUT 2-5 YEARS AND IS NOT INTERESTING FOR GLOBAL MARKET. IN SEARCHING MY PLACE UNDER THE SUN, I MISSED A LOTS OF TRENDS. LIKE YOUTUBE-ING INSTA INFLUENCERS CAP, SNAPCHATTING ETC. TODAY, I LIVE OUT OF FILLING CLIENTS WITH CREATIVE CONTENT FOR SOCIAL MEDIA. SO IM KIND OF STILL MISSING PROPER PERSONAL ACTIVITY ON SM. BUT I'VE BECAME UNIVERSAL WARRIOR OF DIGITAL MARKETING. LUCKY TO SAY THE LEAST, I JUMPED INTO #NFT ACTIVITIES ON FEB 2021. I WISH I WAS THERE FEW YEARS BACK, BUT I CANT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH INFLUENCE OF MY GEOLOCATION - BUT IT IS AN ENVIRONMENT IM STAYING IN FOR GOOD.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM DINER.

    MY PERFECT DINER: LOCATION NEW YORK CAFE, BUDAPEST. SERVING: DAJDAM PURE BEEF BURGERS, VOLCANO SHRIMPS, ITALIAN CHEESES, HUMUS BABAGANUSH. DRINKS: STILL WATER AND SERBIAN WINES. ATTENDANCE: MY AND MY FIANCEE'S CLOSEST FAMILY MEMBERS, PROFESSORS AND FEW FRIENDS WHO TOLERATED AND SUPPORTED ALL THE PHASES OF MY BECOMING TODAYS ADAM. AND OF COURSE, NFT FRIENDS WHO TOOK SEATS ON MY PERSONAL NFT PARTHENON BY HELPING ME OUT IN NFT BABY STEPS. EACH WOULD BE INVITED WITH PERSONAL GRATITUDE CARD FOLLOWED BY SOME PHYSICAL ART I CREATED.

IF YOU COULD SPEND A DAY WITH A FAMOUS CREATIVE PERSON, WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO TOGETHER?

    MILTON GLASER. WE WOULD HAVE TO HELP EACH OTHER TO COOK SOMETHING. THEN WE WOULD SHARE MEAL AND BOTTLE OF WINE(S) AND HAVE ART CHAT, MUSIC AND LAUGH TILL LATE IN THE NIGHT.
