Eva Leliva, painter from Moscow, created in the heart of Belgrade her own little artistic empire. The shop window of her atelier is decorated with three paintings of - Vladimir Putin, Aleksandar Vucic and Vojislav Seselj. This trio caused general euphoria among people from Belgrade, and "Putin" was taken out to be osculated.
The cycle of paintings "How i see Serbs" was created, as the artist said, from her pure love she fosters for our country and for us.
- Serbia is safe while Vucic is here, just as Russia is safe in the hands of Putin. I consider Seselj to be a very colorful person, he deserved to be in this setup. Sincerily, i could not even dream of this trio to cause such reactions. At least twenty people a day stops to take a photo of my gallery window - said the artist.
The greatest thrill causes the painting of Putin.
- One man stopped, looked at the paintings in the window, walked in my atelier, took the Putin painting and took it outside. I moved in shock thinking he will steal it, but he stopped outside, held it above him, kissed it and lead the people to applaud his strange performance, which they did. He wanted to buy the painting, but he gave up when i told him for what kind of money i sell it in Russia. The prices of my works go from 2.000 euros and up, which is too much for Serbia, that's why i don't sell them here - said Eva.
The cycle "Why i love Serbs" is adorned by the paintings of, as Eva said, some of the more famous Serbs - Novak Djokovic, Emir Kusturica, Bora Djordjevic, Svetlana Raznatovic. But among all those famous faces, one man with gray beard stand out, that painting has a special place in Eva's heart.
- That is my late friend. I've known him for a long time, he was a wonderful man. He loved Russia, just as much as i love Serbia, and his greatest wish was to visit Moscow, which he accomplished. I am very happy because of that, but what brings tears to my eyes is that he did not make it to see my portrait. When i started painting it, he rushed me and he was impatient to see it, but unfortunately, he did not make it. He passed away two months before my display - said the painter in trembling voice.
The artist explained what attracted her the most to move to our country.
- I have been coming to Serbia as a tourist for many years, i have always enjoyed myself, i even rented an apartment and stayed for three, four months in Belgrade. Two years ago i decided to move to Serbia. I bought an apartment in Belgrade. I love your country and your people. They are warm and goodhearted, but frankly, the one thing that made me move the most is, your food. I love burgers - concluded with the smile this painter.
