About The Artwork

"The first element" is my new series of works titled 'Volcanoes'. This artworks came spontaneously as 2020 was a very particular year for this world. As an artist, I had an urgent need to change and clean my paintings and have a new start. Here there are no people, my biggest inspiration, but there is the dust, the rocks, the light that create strong shadows. This means the return to the origin of a terrestrial landscape before life. Rocky lava stones are the first element on this planet, that's why I gave this title.

Sanja Milenkovic was born in 1983, in Nis, Serbia. At the age of 18 she moved to Milan. She graduated (BFA) in painting and completed her post-graduated studies (MFA) in Visual Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Brera in Milan, Italy in 2009. She has had numerous exhibitions in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal. Currently she lives and works in Milan. “My inspiration comes from different constance scenes and situations from the real life. The majority of the urban and almost conceptual paintings I am creating is a research on my memory and how snapshots shape can change and create something new. In my works people are playing a major role. I like the moment when the painting is changing and suddenly there is a perfect disorder and some imaginary conversation between people. The sensitivity is revealed in the ability to perceive the condition of nature and translate it into images and consonants colours. Perfect mix is achieved between nearly realistic painted human figures and almost abstract environment. Often I use perspective as a main and fundamental element of composition. My Green series is full of space, fresh colors, people, different views and with all this components I want to create a natural but imaginary atmosphere.”
