I was born in Bajina Bašta, Serbia. My first art show was in 1995 when I was seven years old. After attending the secondary "School of Design", I was accepted to the Braća Karić Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Serbia. I finished top of my class. It is however the early connection to subject through the beauty and creativity inspired by my grandmother, who through use of all the walls in her home, provided me with my first canvasses. I always had pencil and color pens in my hands. My passion for art is deeply rooted in my childhood like an abstraction or surreal reality.
Wind whips violently through my hair. The curves having folded into other curves cry out for color. In the darkness of thes white canvas, possibilities exist. Is it the expansion of the universe or collapse bursting forward as my brush dips into paint.
My world is full of color that influences all the emotions of living experience. Life has taught me all emotions lead to happy times and value from the act of creation and its subjectivity.
I turn to a myriad of colors to guide the observer to understand the infiniteness of nature and how precious life is. I stand immersed in the vibrant blue of the afternoon and watching it dissolve into the subtle twilight hues, filling me with creative energy and empowering my creative vision.
My work strives to present my vision of living movements. My goal as an artist is to make people happy. By presenting my images in such a way that they can absorb the beauty that is all around us. That is what I try to achieve in every detail of my art.
