KS : Can you please explain about the difference between the Art scene in your home town and The art scene in Austin-USA?

SG : Slovakia and USA are two countries with completly different history and way of life. This and many other things reflecting the art-scene.
But people are the same all over the world, they just grow up and live in different cultures and propagandas.I don’t see any major differences in the minds of artists.
