Biography

ALEKSANDAR BASIC (pronounced basshich)

 

I am a Visual Artist born in Croatia, 1975. In 2002 I have completed BA Illustration at University of Derby and in 2007 MA Media Arts at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I regularly exhibit in exhibitions around the UK displaying fine art paintings that stand on their own as collectible works of art.

I am interested in all areas of art and design, although I am mostly using oils, I constantly experiment with different styles and media. My motifs are people, objects and places that have left impressions on me. I find inspiration in existentialism, impressionism, cubism and most of the other isms.

When creating artwork, I am not thinking about the style but rather what I want to achieve. I am interested in “how things work” and I investigate this in different aspects of form, shape, light and colour.

Aside from working as an artist, I am also working with adults and children as a lecturer at university and a college teacher. In 2010 I worked as a visiting lecturer at Hunaghuai University in China teaching animation to second year art students.
