Elitsa Ristova: I was born and raised in Macedonia, but the curiosity of
understanding the unknown is inside of me so I start living and traveling abroad.
Currently, I am based in London, studying at LCCA London College of
This project entry concerns the idea of setting ourselves free, completely
free in the philosophy of the mind. Through satire elements and “pungent
emotions” I am exploring the concept of being completely emotionally detached
from others or being neutral, also finding ourselves in emotional balance or
imbalance appearance during our lifetime.
The title of this edition is evoked by the life experience of staying calm
through tender or being arrogant when it peacefully, which connects the
awareness of diversity among people. I have been diagnosed with Epilepsy at a

The satire painting “Earthy life and pungent emotions, is including small
sarcastic elements as the secret woman conversation and the arrogance of being
calm and undisturbed when provoked by environment.
“Pungent emotional state “ means having very strong or sharp smell of feelings,
and still being able to stand and free yourself.

and loving” but I can be Bizarre too, which explains duality of the modern woman,
calming and progressive at the same time.
She loves herself, she love her satire conversation with friends , the smell of clean

provoked but continuously in emotional depth.
I truly believe in the woman nature who is capable in her nature to move the
evolution of the world , she is an incredible caressing and generous gender. She is
strong and progressive, and for her natural manipulation to be manifested in the
right direction it is important the understanding of her nature, equanimity of the
mind and consciousness.
During this summer I am looking forward to develop this project to a solo
