CENTRAL TOPIC: I am capturing human nature, its powers and weaknesses. I am interested in the interplay of physical, emotional, and cognitive articulations that - jointly with random drifts - may shape and re-shape human experience, intuition, particular forms of expression, perceptions as well as individual and collective decisions. BACKGROUND: As my childhood trilemma (becoming an astronaut, an explorer, or an artist), never ended, I have embraced a complex career path. I first attended an art school as a preparatory course for the Fine Arts Academy. Then, after my Bachelor of Arts / MA / in philosophy, I continued my doctoral research in academia, studying sciences, arts, and emerging technologies. For many years I have been working as as a researcher, but also as a curator responsible for PR management at a national museum. Eventually, all my life experience led me towards realisation of my innate and profound need to communicate through my paintings. So, here we are! MOTIVATION: Facing an empty canvas or a piece of paper is the moment when I feel invited to immerse into it. It is the very act of painting that drives me to create my artworks the way I do. In my semi-figurative paintings, you may recognise certain elements of critics and prise of contemporary society, positive and negative delusions, human ignorance and joy, depicted in oil, ink, acrylic, and digital media. PLACEMENT: Till 2007 I was living and working in my hometown Belgrade (SRB). I had a cheerful childhood in a special country, Yugoslavia. During my adolescence, my country changed its identity, name and borders several times. I witnessed human struggle, play of power, wars, hunger, death and an immense human capacity of survival. I moved to Milan (ITA) in 2008. During my Ph.D and a post doctoral period I spent some time in Exeter (GBR), and Bremen (DEU). I am currently based in Milan.
