Slavko Illustrator: Slavko Mali

I was born in 1957 in Kosovo. There I finished art school for interior designing. My family moved to Belgrade. My father, a former officer of Tito's army, was an alcoholic. As any brainwashed person, he hated all progressive things and he tried to kill all the talents inside of me. He did not want to support my schooling financially. I studied landscape designing, arranging, and decorating. I finished nothing because the whole day I worked hard physical fieldworks and in factories, too. In the evening, I used to run away from my father into a pub. That way I wasted my youth. At the end, I left home forever. I was 29 years old. At the station of Nish, I got off, having a single pair of blue jeans and $99 in my pocket. My independent life started that way. I drew comics, illustrations, caricatures. I wrote poems, short stories, newspaper articles. I was making posters (bills) and scenographies. However, in this country, a man who works on those things cannot live well. Here, only politicians and criminals live nicely. I played guitar and harmonica and I drank a lot. I used to sell my paintings on the street, for a pack of cigarettes and a glass of drink. My country was broken by inflation, wars, bombardment... Now I live in a small, conservative town, where I write and draw for local newspapers. I lost that job because I was not a member of the ruling party. During the hyperinflation, when wages were about $1 or $2 monthly, I could not buy milk for my two year old son. He was drinking tea. Communists taught me only the Russian language. I wanted to leave this country, but I had no place to go. I still do not have a passport. I have an old 1969 Volkswagen "beetle", which I don't drive, but sometimes I sit inside of it and watch through the windshield, imagining me travelling through the desert full of cactuses and blue wigwams. I keep receiving letters from around the world, sent by artists who have seenmy drawings. Then I climb up the mountain, look into the distance and cry.
