Igor Ponochevny, artist
If you post your picture on your native Internet, in an open public where you can post your painting, then they will definitely write in the comments:
- my son can draw better
- you better write texts
- Being a specialist (some Russian-speaking gallery owner in Switzerland wrote in the comments under the post with my work), I authoritatively declare that the works are very weak and unprofessional.
But if you post the same thing in an English-language public, you won’t see a single disapproving comment at all. Most of the comments will be:
- Just wow!
- Love it!
And other good reviews.
People living in an open society genuinely rejoice and support you. But people living in a dysfunctional society drown you in it too, so that, God forbid, you don't get out.
