The long list of International Awareness Days are the proof that irrelevant days do not actually exist. They are recording days of firefighters, nurses, turtles, poetry, people who feel happy or sick of tuberculosis… Every date and every topic are important to someone, so condemning some days of being ordinary or boring are caused only by personal perception and expectations. I took this list as a starting point for creating a cycle of over 470 paintings and more that 50 short stories, under the common name DEAR DIARY, because every day deserves to be noticed.
