In the European area, I presented my work in Belarus, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Netherlands, Serbia, United Kingdom, and Ukraine.
I worked in capitals like Minsk, Berlin, London, Athens, Riga, Praha, and Kyiv, as well in other famous cities like Leipzig, Bergen, Rotterdam, Novi Sad, Firenze and Torino.
In Riga and Bergen, I presented my work twice in two different venues in the same cities.
At the same time, I presented my work in peripheral areas like Odžaci, Campi Bisenzio, Osnago, and Prato, and other cities like Pistoia, Livorno, and Lucca.
Close to some small villages like Montecatini Val di Cecina, Vernéřovice, and Cicogna, I presented my work in a former copper mine, in a former church in the middle of a forest, and in a historical botanical garden.

In the Asian area, I presented my work in Bangladesh.
I worked in the capital, Dhaka, in two different venues, for a solo and a collaborative piece.
During my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, I had as mates internationally artists.
After my studies, I always felt the need to keep this international aspect of my artistic life alive.
So I decided to develop my work internationally and to base my studio in Berlin, a multicultural city, in the heart of Europe.
When I present my work in other countries is not only a matter to reach a new audience.
I have clear in my mind how I want to develop my art.
At the same time, I'm trying to overcome myself.
Every experience abroad challenging me.
Feedbacks from the international audience, as well from colleagues of other countries, offer me great opportunities to expand my art.
Provincialism afflicts me, although, art is always stronger than any mental or physical border.
