Portrait Of The Artist As A Consumer: Renato Bratkovič

Alibi, Portait Of The Artist As A Consumer, Punk Noir Magazine, Renato Bratkovic



I don’t really watch too much TV, maybe twice or three times a month I catch a film on our national TV station. But I do like Netflix: Black Mirror, Unorthodox, After Life, The Stranger, Living with Yourself, Derek, Peaky Blinders, Safe, The Valhalla Murders, Novine, Love Death + Robots, Russian Doll,


Works by Hubert Selby, Irvine Welsh, Chuck Palahniuk, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Norman Mailer, Henry Miller, Kurt Vonnegut and Charles Bukowski are my favourites.


I never get bored with Stanley Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hal Hartley, Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Sofia Coppola, David Fincher, Stephen Soderbergh, Spike Lee, Danny Boyle, …


My ears are used to Laibach, Nick Cave, Radiohead, Einstürzende Neubauten, Teho Teardo, Kraftwerk, Mizar, The Doors, many projects by Mike Patton, instrumental jazz, classical music, film music, etc.


There’s no place like home … I’m slowly becoming a hermit …


I like to eat to stay alive, but food is not so important to me …


… as beer. All types and styles of.


As a kid, I dreamt of becoming a comic book artist and animator. I still love visual arts, painting, design, illustration and photography very much, so wherever I go, every city I visit, I make sure to check out their galleries and museums.
