Original Illustration: “Night Out at Caffe Varnaj” (2020)

$480.00

In September 2019, I spent a month at an artist residency in the suburbs of Skopje, Macedonia. One day, I went for a walk in the neighborhood and came across this cafe, which looked “unfinished”. The building seemed to be missing a coat of plaster and paint, and yet the chairs and tables set up outside indicated this cafe was open for business.

I found out later that such buildings and houses with unfinished exteriors are common in Skopje, as it’s rather costly to beautify the outside of the building. Inside, however, it’s just as finished as any other “completed” building or home.

Thus this imagined scene at Caffe Varnaj tells a story of celebrating what’s important – relationships, friendship, community, everyone having a great time together – rather than what a building looks like on the outside.
