I am very proud, and honored that I was selected to be the part of this great project of World Art Critics, called Genius of Art. The Selection was created by Dot. Salvatore Russo. My painting is included into this special edition of Effeto Arte Magazine.
The painting presented is done in technique Oil on Canvas... - title "Dream of Sh-angry La" which is related to the Milton's novel about Paradise that is lost. However, the inspiration that I found in the real world was in river Drina, that is running through Serbia, emitting the most wonderful turquoise ray of light, enriching the soul.

Dott. Salvatore Russo said:
" Marija Tanaskovic Papadopoulos who is characterized by the great artistic value of the proposed works. The mastery of form and color, with the genius of content of each work of art, are therefore the main elements of the evaluative choice of this great project."
