▶ Colini: The Humble Surrealist – YouTube

There are people you meet in life who change you.  Surrealist Vojen Cech Colini was one of those people for me.

I interviewed Colini for The Art Times Journal.

We met in his house, in Pennsylvania.  We sat at his kitchen table while he rifled through a shoe box of some of the most exquisite paintings I have ever seen.  And he told stories of his youth, his companions — Magritte, Man Ray, Max Ernst.

And he entranced me with his artistic abilities, his humility and his beautiful, clear vision. Colini made surrealism come alive for me.

Today, I stumbled across a YouTube video that brought this wonderful artist, this luminous man back to me – his words, his smile and his stunning images.

Today, I share Vojen Cech Colini with you and hope you find him as compelling as I did almost 10 years ago.
