Hi, Aleks! Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hello, my name is Aleksandar Bubalo. I’m from Belgrade, but I’m living and studying Fine Arts in Vienna. At the moment I’m working on my diploma - a short movie about Serbian contemporary dancing.
Do you have any hobbies?
When I was younger I did a lot of skateboarding. Although I stopped for a few years, I’m trying to get back to it now.
Tell us about your Trigraphy experience? How are you using it?
You can find a lot of photos edited with Trigraphy on my Instagram page @bubilibabili.
I don’t have certain pattern how to use it. Basically, when I see a picture in my gallery and think that it will work well with some of Trigraphy’s filters, I load the app. I have an idea which filter to use, but I still try out every picture effect, just to see how it will turn up. When I find what I’m looking for, I continue editing with the mask. I’m experimenting.
When was the first time you received public recognition for your photos?
Recently I made a portrait of myself and I thought to myself - why not edit the photo with Trigraphy? I edited it and posted it on Instagram. At the beginning I didn’t think it was special, but then a lot of artists told me: “This is the best arty portrait you have done”. I told myself - OK, if artists like it, then let’s do more like it. So I made more portraits of people using the same picture effect and style and decided to make an exhibition.
How did the exhibition go?
The exhibition went amazing - It was in a gallery in Vienna. At some point of the opening night there were around 80 people all together and it was a bit overwhelming.
What’s next in your art career?
I’m thinking of making a second exhibition in Belgrade after I finish the cinematography project for my diploma.
Anything else you want to say?
If you have a good photo, you can make it even better with Trigraphy.
Trigraphy is one of my favorite picture editor apps for iPhone and making “mobile” art.
