"Take three deep breaths" is book by Emir Šehanović, an artist from Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina), whose biography is underlined with numerous engagements in street art projects, graffiti festivals, group and solo exhibitions. He co-founded an art group "Manufaktura" and was an important member of the "Art of Asfalt" collective that brought together artists from the republic’s of Ex-Yugoslavia, that had their roots in skateboard culture and continued to use streets as their space of expression. Emir won numerous awards in the field of visual communications.
An inspiration for the body of work presented in this book comes from a pagan heeling practice called "saljevanje strave" (the ritual of pouring led into water and than reading from it) that is still practiced in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
