About my art

BIOGRAPHY


 

I was born in 1982. In 2007 i finished the Faculty of fine arts in Belgrade, Serbia, as a graduated master of painting. During my faculty and to this day i am actively exhibiting my art, i had many solo and group exhibitions, some of them abroad- Bulgaria, China, France. I work, apart from my personal works, also on illustrations and comics, caricatures and children books, graphic and web design, also i am creating landscapes and portraits for commission purposes. I work both in traditional painting and digital medias, using mostly Photoshop and Illustrator. Mostly though, esspecially in the last two years, i focused on creating my own, personal art.

I am a member of ULUS and i have a status of independent artist since 2011. I also work with several informal art groups, and i have colaborated with other artists on some group projects in the past.

 

STATEMENT


 

Living in Serbia during the 90's I have seen the collapse of many moral and citizen values- the former Yugoslavia broke down in a bloody civil war. Growing up in a society where the politics is ever-present I became interested in it, so I started making my own art inspired by it. The central character of my art poetics is the character of the politician. He is the archetype of evil, the obese, blind, pale-skinned, bald and gluttonous individual in a black business suit, a pure greed in human form. He is portrayed practically in all of my personal works. Other archetypical characters are also presented to some extent, like the character of an bureaucrat, of ordinary working man, of model and other human types. In my personal art I am frequently using illustration style techniques. Popular culture, from movies to video games, illustrations and comic, inspires me greatly . I also use caricature, irony, sarcasm and politically incorrect humor in my works. I started exploring the evil, the roots of it, how it begins and how it evolves, trying to make a detailed studies of it in my works. Modern world with all its complexity inspires me. I believe that art can inspire people to be better and to do better- art can change the world, one viewer at the time. By exposing the truth, the objective reality as I see it, I hope that at first it can make people laugh, and then make them think and ponder over the message which I am trying to tell.
