We had the good fortune of connecting with Drasko V and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Drasko, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Without risk, I would not have had the journey that shaped me into the person I am today. Not taking a risk might sound safer and more comfortable, but there is no growth and experience in comfort. Taking a risk can come with pain, but it will for sure have the reward of growth, courage, experience. Inspiring stories almost always involve risks and overcoming difficulties. Comfort zones are killers of creative spirit. The artistic process is a reflective and expressive journey, and learning to face fears and jump into unknowns in life is going to expand and evolve your artistic spirit too. “Where your fear is, there your task is.” – Carl Jung
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My creative work is usually an intersection of sound, visuals, generative art, data, and when possible, utilizing public environments and real-time interaction. My work ranges from personal art, to creative direction and music production for film studios, brands and agencies.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The itinerary would be laying on the beach as many hours as possible. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
While I’ve endured many challenges in my life, I’ve been incredibly lucky with truly great friendships and small but amazing family. In dark times, simply knowing that there is someone who can provide support can be enough of a light to fight off a lot of the darkness. As we all get older and endure difficulty, we start to realize how hard it could be to put on a smile, to be kind, to be motivated, to fight. And how much this should be respected in people who are giving it all to be the light for others, against all odds. My mom was a big inspiration for me, because she stayed strong and motivated and with a smile even when that was really difficult to do. I realized the value and respect for this more and more as I got older. I’m very grateful for my family and friends and even those that created challenges for me, everything added fuel to the fire. This reminds me of another great quote by Bukowski: “What matters most is how well you walk through the fire”.
