Might be called an Outsider artist due to the lack of academic qualification in the Metier, as well as lack of the conditioning by art world trends.
Originating in what used to be Socialist Yugoslavia, nowadays Serbia. Studied Music and Political Sciences, have been working as a translator/interpreter, secretary, cook, and a bureaucrat. Have been living in Italy and England for a while, presently living in Germany and working in the field diametrically opposed to art.
In the beginning a hindrance, my present work turned out to be a highly inspirational: it provided for the opportunity to get deeper insight into the current societal state of mind: intolerance, decadence, insolence, ignorance, cruelty, greed, envy, stupidity, corruption.
In the beginning occupied by creating "Frames for the Ego", thus criticizing the identification of the Self with the Ego; mocking the search of fulfillment outside oneself.
Initially, the mirror was used for the central part of each frame. This was abandoned, due to observer's misunderstanding of the concept. Also, photographing the pieces turned out to be very difficult.
Since junk of all sorts enjoys my highest regard, and there's been a constant flood of interesting items, as well as of cardboard packaging, I took distance from my "Framework" and started painting on it.
Why "White and Black" digression? We seem to be facing the peak of the disease of inversion of everything: ethics and aesthetics turned on head, attack on sound sense and everything worth living for. Hypocrite instead of Hippocrates. As I understand it, at present, there is nothing in between to be seen; either White or Black.
Apart from successful High school exhibitions, a while ago, one of my works,"Religio 2” is being shown on the site of the Envision Arts’ “Black and White II” 2019 show, and “Metropolis” was one of the finalists in the “Black and White” Contest 2019 of the Florence Contemporary Gallery. Won the Fourth place in the Fusion Art's 5th Black & WhiteArt Exhibition for the "Trophy" and the Third place in the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery's "AllWomen" Online Art Competition also for the "Trophy", as well as the Special Recognition for the "Programs".
