About The Artwork

"Mens Sana" is a part of my newest series of abstract drawings. I start each drawing of the series by "searching" for a shape with a pencil. I lightly trace shapes on paper until a certain form takes shape and dominates the piece. Once I am satisfied with the created form I clean up the rest of the unnecessary lines and decide on the color and the way I will "fill" the shape. The form on this one seemed solid and I wanted to color it densely, imprinting the paper with colored pencils I used. It felt almost visceral.

Contemporary artist living in Belgrade, Serbia. I received my Bachelor and Master Degrees at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. During my studies, I had spent one year at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. A member of the Serbian Art Association (ULUS) I have been interested in art ever since I can remember. As I was growing up I dipped my toe in lots of things, ballet, piano, singing, writing... At the age of twelve I met one elderly painter who fascinated me and gave me some lessons in painting. Becoming an artist was my dream at that time. I find inspiration for my work everywhere, in so many amazing artists both from art history and from contemporaries worldwide. Nature is also very important, especially plants with their juicy little details. But most of my inspiration, or what drives me comes from work itself. The more I paint or draw the more new ideas I have. When it comes to mediums and techniques, I mostly paint with oil colors on canvas. I find the oil technique to be the best medium for my urban landscapes. It has great flow and transparency which helps me depict the motion of the city's busy life and to work in layers. As for drawing I absolutely love it! I find it the most sincere of all techniques, where the artist is who he is. I use practically every medium or technique but ink is my favorite medium because it requires patience and focus and with it, I can really emphasize the details. I have had eleven solo shows and counting. I participated in a number of group shows, workshops, art camps and won the award at the Biennale of student drawing Serbia. My work is to be found in small private collections, in Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Serbia. If you are interested or have any questions about my work don't hesitate to ask me, I will be happy to answer.
