About The Artwork

Painting: Oil on Canvas. Ivana Živić is certainly not an ordinary painter of realistic motifs. She is different from everyone else, one of the most original artists, because she does not use common solutions of new realists. She does not paint hyperrealistically; she has her own expression, she does not research expanded scenes and human heads, the, conditionally speaking, favorite large format portrait art today, which could be understood as the landscape of the human body and face. Instead, she composes complex wholes, very requesting oil paintings in terms of solving the frog perspective, body shortening and distortion, optically conditioned by the refraction of the scene in water. Her artistic world appears realistic at first glance, but, in terms of ideas and conceptually, it is dislocated to completely unreal environments, the picture is drowned into an aquatic atmosphere and the bodies sunken into a water labyrinth.

Ivana Živić (1979, Sarajevo) is an artist living and working in Belgrade. Živić focuses her attention on paintings which are characterised by exploring the interiors submerged underwater in a unique blend of realism, fantasy and montage. Executed with great finesse, the viewer feels enveloped by these spaces populated by a single presence of a swimmer, sometimes joined by another, exploring the inner world of emotions. Živić studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, where she graduated in 2004 and obtained her MA degree at the same faculty. Since 2006, Živić has been a member of the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia (ULUS), and her work has been the subject of 20 solo exhibitions and over 50 group exhibitions internationally. Živić is the recipient of the award of the Vladimir Veličković Drawing Fund (2016); the Rotary Club Award (2014); the Diploma of the Vladimir Veličković Drawing Fund (2012); Award for the production of work from the Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos Fund (2012), and the Diploma of the 2nd Drawing Biennale in Pančevo (2009). She was a resident artist at Cite Internationale des Arts Paris in France (2009) and GLO’ART centre in Lanaken, Belgium (2015)Artist in Residence at Serbian Art Month, Art hub, Abu Dhabi 2018. Her works are in notable private collections around Europe and America.
