|I was born in Kruševac (Serbia) in 1965, my father is Serbian and my mother was Greek, due to which I have both the Serbian and Greek citizenship.|
I entered the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade and they accepted me in the second year immediately as extremely talented, which happened only three times in the history of that state school. I have graduated from that faculty and after that I won a Master's degree on the Chair for drawing in 1991.
Because of a disagreement with the official exhibiting policy which was present on the Belgrade scene of fine arts, due to negative selection and corruption, I had a conflict with powerful men, because of which it was almost made impossible for me to exhibit. Despite all these difficulties, I still had three very significant exhibitions in Belgrade:
The first one was the Master's degree exhibition in the gallery of my Faculty in 1991.
The next one was in Kolarceva Gallery in 1994.
In the end, the last one was in one of the most eminent galleries in Serbia, the Culture Centre in Belgrade, in the heat of bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. One of the most eminent Serbian art critics Nikola Kusovac wrote the preface for this exhibition.
I have been painting ever since my earliest childhood.
I mostly deal with figural, expressionist painting. Such painting ranges from realism to fantasy. Fantasy, however is what interests me the most, and figuration is also a rest from imagining, but its toughest construction as well.
The paintings presented on the site have been created in the period from 2000 until the present days in the technique of acrylic. The formats are not big; the biggest one is 1m by 80 cm.
I live and work in Belgrade.
