Róbert Bartolen How to be yourself quote on Thursd


The collection is an expression of the need to return to his own self. The author uses it to express how often a person can get lost in front of their own soul today. For many of us, the moment of marriage is an event when we bring the person we love into our personality. But very often the current world around us deprives us of a real view of what our soul really needs and how it perceives this world itself. It is therefore very right to perceive our own selves at the right time and to try to understand ourselves.


Robert Bartolen 'Searching For The Soul' on Thursd


In one of his latest floral projects named "Searching For The Soul", Róbert pursues to expose the symphony and importance of the existence that lives within each of us. The connection between man and soul is the star concept in this work of art.

Róbert created a space in which he planted three objects. Woman, horse, and bouquet. The brutality of this space creates a contrast between it and the point of the collection. This opposing comparison creates a sense of a sure world. By combining three objects, he created one being who metaphorically searches for his true self. She is carried away by the number of feelings that mix in her.


It seems melancholy, but at the same time spontaneous.

It seems dominant, but at the same time very submissive.

She seems confident, but at the same time, she is on the verge of crying.

She looks romantic, but at the same time, hot blood flows in her veins.


Even this is the reality of personality today. Each of us was swept away by the river of time. Which sometimes carries him away with the waves, but sometimes he takes the ruthless way of suffering. It will take us into a whirlwind of events that we must overcome and we will forget about ourselves along the way. And especially for your soul.

6 Words That Describe Róbert Bartolen’s “Searching For The Soul”

To make his floral work of art even more interesting, Róbert Bartolen has dedicated a special word to each floral arrangement exhibited in this project. Each word has a special symbolism behind it that reincarnates the purpose of the flowers and the type of arrangement used in each picture.



How to be yourself? And how to merge unnoticed? A warm summer breeze blows in the wind and we take worries out of our minds. I only perceive how my heart adapts to the rhythms in harmony with the world around me.
