Mario Vinko Prizmic was born in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Since 1982, he has lived in Amsterdam and Paris. He travels throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas in his pursuit of reality and dreams. He has studied under various metaphysical masters and, together with the Don Quixote of America (the New York-born explorer and Philippine-based designer Matthew S.

We are brain dead, heart dead. The only thing to change our state of mind is to read. Love, Life and After That takes you to places you could never imagine–and further. A journey through time, space–where you don’t arrive to where you thought you were going.”
The Frankfurt Book Fair, during its 60th anniversary, was once again delightfully jolted by another Vinko Prizmic book produced by the United Artists Project. Together with a young Slovenian artist Ana Baraga, Vinko Prizmic created Nelito, An Emotional Tampon that was described by one German journalist as a “… red, little miracle of magical nonsense…
