Lilya Pavlovic-DearNew York NY USA
I was inspired by tales and mythology in which reality is mixed with dream. I was exposed to many different cultures making me open to understanding, accepting and respecting those who are different. By doing that my life became richer and it reflected in my work. 56 solo shows and 200 group exhibitions in Paris, New York, Washington, London, Los Angeles, Brussels and Hamburg.
