ARTIST’S STATEMENT I was born in Sarajevo in 1977. When I was six years old I made my first success in painting when my drawing representing the children of Bosnia and Herzegovina was used during the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. However, I remember the disappointment in that drawing when it was done – That drawing was different from the other kids drawings – it set me apart, when all I wanted was to be part of the crew, one of the guys. Still, they accepted my work so I felt accepted and somewhat special.” I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina) in 2005, and now I live and work in Belgrade (Serbia). I have been a member of “The Serbian Association of Fine Arts” since 2011. Early in my career I had five solo and multiple group art exhibitions. However, for the last few years I neglected the exhibition of my work, devoting myself instead to my creative process. Now I plan to be active showing my work and planning to do more art exhibitions. As money for art in Serbia is not freely available I have to find sense and significance in the reactions of people, in their feedback, their praises and in their critiques.
