Jelena Antić is an Iceland-based visual artist who originally hails from Belgrade, Serbia. She held 7 solo exhibitions and holds a Master’s degree in Painting, Mosaic, and Contemporary Art from the University of Arts in Serbia and is a member of the Icelandic Association of Artists.
Her main form of visual expression is through painting but she rejects the general conventions of the medium choosing to avoid specific representations of objects or figures. Much like instrumental music without words or explanation, Her work is best described as a visual representation of feeling both thoughtful and meditative. Her aim is to give the viewers to interpret her work as they see it and to create their own narrative.
Antić’s primary influences are informel, abstract expressionism and abstract minimalism inspired by concepts of theoretical physics, philosophy, and contemporary art theory. All her works exhibit a strong personal stamp, deeply influenced by her life and experience.
