A real life example of love at first sight? As far as I know, it’s a true story. The Serbian beauty Ana Kraš married Devendra Banhart, and the two now live together in L.A.

The two are equally interesting.

I can’t stop looking at her photography.

I can’t stop listening to his music.

Her websites:

Banhart is an unreal musician. He has different, catchy songs.

(He also dated Natalie Portman a few years ago who stars in his video Carmensita.)

Good Songs:

1) Feel Just Like A Child

2) Santa Maria De Feira

3) Never Seen Such Good Things

4) Bad Girl

To create Breathing In/Breathing Out the two artists devised a piece in which they connected their mouths and took in each other’s exhaled breaths until they had used up all of the available oxygen. Seventeen minutes after the beginning of the performance they both fell to the floor unconscious, their lungs having filled with carbon dioxide. This personal piece explored the idea of an individual’s ability to absorb the life of another person, exchanging and destroying it.”

Marina Abramović and Ulay Laysiepen are both Serbian artists who did some interesting performance art, of an experimental nature in the 70’s. Some other performaces similar to the above example can be found on YouTube. An interesting one is where they both stand naked in a doorway and see which direction strangers choose to face as they walk through.

Abramovićs most recent project is ‘The Artist is Present”.
