The Illuminati loved to feel important. That’s why he went into politics, married a tall beautiful woman, won a Nobel Peace Prize, and asked everyone to call him Mr. Illuminati.
His career was brilliant and inspirational. He overthrew governments by an executive order. He changed the destinies of nations just by looking at a map. He was in charge of the axis of evil and bomb next lists. His policies rewarded the right people and punished the wrong ones. Young people wanted to be him. Ladies adored him.
He lived to a very old age, wrote many books, gave many speeches and became a renowned symbol of success. He was invited to the most prestigious Illuminati events all over the world, and was called a role-model. He felt pleased and content about his lifelong achievements.
All over the world people felt presence of the Illuminati;
He was everywhere and he was everyone
Born in Soviet-era Odessa in 1971 into a family of art lovers who encouraged her painting from a very young age, illustrative artist Anita Zotkina (anitazotkina.com) situates her visionary painting in the surrealist tradition. Writers of fairy tales such as Hans Christian Andersen, for whom everything is alive and has a soul, children’s author Kenneth Grahame in The Wind in the Willows, and, most strikingly, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in his classic masterwork for lone lost souls, Le Petit Prince, influence her preternatural and supportive dreamscapes. After attending a year of art school at the precocious age of eleven, where she sought to draw/paint “something wild” but found herself assigned to “vases, dry flowers, and fake fruits,” she “had to drop out because it was too boring.” Having immigrated to New England at the age of 27, Anita Zotkina today makes her home in Vermont where she continues her artistic career. When asked about her art she responds, “I love to imagine that I am an extraterrestrial being who was sent to Earth as a peace volunteer. Therefore, the main theme of all my artworks is love and the search for inner peace.” Using varied media ranging from thick oils on canvas to textured acrylics on paper, as Zotkina shades with charcoals and startles with pastels, luminescent beauty darts in and out, arresting one’s gaze. As the viewer explores detailed worlds populated with strangely sentient figures who seem caught in often subconscious spells of solitude yet communicate interconnectedly across works, she indeed finds herself undergoing a kind of interplanetary travel a là Kurt Vonnegut, another strong spirit guide for Zotkina.
