Interview

Bosnian Graphic Designer Armin Numanović

By Azad Karimi

 

Young people are human capital, and any country that plans this capital will be a successful country. I was interested in Armin's last sentence when he wrote: "Normal" for other isn’t always "normal" for you.

 In my opinion, this is one of the basics of aesthetics. And that means being inspired by nature and phenomena. And art is a means of expressing our perception of these natural phenomena. Artist's work expresses her/his understanding of what others often think is natural but not natural to the artist.

The question is, how does this capacity come about for the artist?

Intrinsic talent is basic, but how does this talent come to the fore? And how does this stage grow and reach the realm of creativity? At this point in time, competition is an important factor in motivating artists and the role of high education is very important for training creative artists. Funding for the artist to produce a work of art is essential. Artist's confidence in financing and guaranteeing well-being for the future is also crucial, on the other hand, the artist should not be concerned about insurance and welfare and medical services, and countries should consider solutions to this issue. Armin is a talented artist. He has a pure heart. He is kind and noble. Surely, he will be useful for his country. Congratulations to Bosnia for having this type of artists, of which Aarmin is one.I wish him the best in his life with success and happiness.
