About The Artwork

Every person has scars; they are the traumatic legacy of our experiences. Our communities and societies bear the scars of conflict, of hardship, and of progress. Our beautiful planet bears the scars of environmental damage. The quest of every individual, every society and humanity as a whole is to seek healing and find a way forward. We look to many places for this healing. Sometimes we look only to escape the pain. Sometimes we turn to religion. Often, we turn to each other. Vinko seeks to offer hope and healing through Art. His work is a beacon of hope for the troubled; it does not shrink from the portrayal of truth, but provides a life-affirming acknowledgement that we are more than the sum of our parts. It is a testament to the strength that may come from weakness, the power that may come from brokenness, and the peace that may come from pain.

Vinko Kalcic is an internationally acclaimed artist based in London. 
Born in Yugoslavia, he began drawing as a young child, creating colourful cartoon-like works inspired by comic books and fuelled by a vivid imagination. At just eighteen years old he began to paint in the bold, frank style of Naïve Art. Just one year later, he sold his first painting. This was the beginning of a career that would take him across the world, exploring the many facets of the Art world, from photography to music and beyond. The young artist’s career launched with successful exhibitions throughout Italy including in Milan, Rome, Turin, Venice, Udine, Trieste, Como etc. and later across Europe in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Formal education followed, primarily in Fine Art/Design but in later years his dedication to artistic and personal development would lead to studies in Multimedia, Digital Compositing for Film/Video in London’s Escape Studios and Creative Studies in Queen’s University, Belfast. In 1991, the bloodiest interethnic and unjustified conflict in Europe since the Second World War broke out in Yugoslavia. Vinko a passionate pacifist believing that the value of human life is so high that nothing can justify killing a person deliberately, he fled the country and found himself in Northern Ireland on friend’s invitation. He forged connections and friendships with many like-minded artists, most notably the renowned singer-songwriter Tommy Sands. Tommy’s compassionate nature and innate talent are matched only by his dedication to peace activism. Music, art and antiwar movement forged a beautiful friendship. Vinko had a chance and privilege to work with him on a number of music and peace projects. Vinko became profoundly aware of the need for healing, in the past, present and future. His family history bore the deep wounds of personal tragedy during the Second World War. 
The healing nature of Art is a concept that has echoed throughout Vinko’s work.  The opportunity to put this concept into action came with his involvement in a cross-community outreach project facilitated by the Northern Ireland Peace & Reconciliation Board. Working with Tom Newman, acclaimed producer/engineer of Mike Oldfield's legendary Tubular Bells'. Vinko provided visuals (design/photography/video) for an exciting reworking of this masterpiece with around 800 segregated schoolchildren in number of schools across Northern Ireland.
