Meet the artist Nikola Tesla...


Nikola Tesla was a Serbian inventor, electrical engineer, and mechanical engineer.

His incessant search for the development of inventions that could be patented and commercialized, made him known for his phrase “My first observations terrified me when I was alone in the laboratory at night, because something mysterious, if not supernatural, was present in them.”

“Antisocial behavior is a trait of intelligence in a world full of conformists.” - Nikola Tesla
