About Vanja Subotic

I was born in Vukovar, the former Yugoslavia. Currently I reside and work in Subotica, Serbia.
Starting point of my work is based on feelings of inner self in different contexts and a desire of self exploration through different media and artistic techniques.
My work commences as a translation proces of personal experiences observed from a distant and objective perspective with an aim of finding a place and meaning in a wider collective space.
While my artistic process develops it appears to extend the language borders and transcend the reality in order to establish a personal system of values and symbolic order and to review the relation of drawing/painting as a spiritual discipline (non symbolic) to the existing systems.
