I was absolutely thrilled when a friend and former colleague of mine Otto Bubeníček approached me with a special art project proposal that would combine our artistic skills in a unique way. He asked me to draw a portrait of Alina Cojucaru in her role as Gelsomina, which he then seamlessly incorporated into the poster for the world premiere of ballet „La Strada“. Together, we discussed our creative vision and collaborated on ideas for the portrait.
As an artist, the opportunity to contribute to the visual representation of such an artistic event was exhilarating. Seeing the final result come to life was immensely satisfying, and I couldn’t be prouder of our collaborative effort.
It was a truly valuable experience, and I am grateful to have had the chance to work alongside such a talented and creative artist on this special endeavor.
