„...The struggle for one’s own art begins and ends within the artist himself. Even if I no longer believe that art can change the world, I still believe that without art the world would be a different place. Art preserves the memories of the world and has the power to recreate it. "Bad times" cannot prevent a true artist from creating. He possesses all times, the past, the present, and the future and creates a world which triumphs through the power of its own truth...“ Ilija Penušliski
