Based in: Subotica
I was born on 25th May 1990, in Subotica, Serbia. I got my degree in Visual Arts in 2013, at the University of Szeged, in Hungary. Now I live and work in my hometown. Although my work is highly abstracted, we can discover worlds in the details – the sun, the moon, the water, skies, dust in the clouds, windows on houses. However, the topic is of a secondary importance to me, while I paint I mostly deal with the composition and creating the balance. One of the pillars of my painting is the planned, controlled randomness, the conscious placement of gestures that may seem accidental on the canvas, based on compositional aspects. I seek harmony between the constructive, the geometric, and the expressive, the chaotic. Despite the placement of each geometric shape on the canvas is in contrast with the surrounding sweeping brush strokes, paint dribbling, sharp charcoal lines, a sense of harmony, calmness in the restless reality emerge.

Nature inspires me. Vast horizons, endless plains, massive mountain peaks. Landscapes I've seen and places I've never been to.
My creative process can be divided to two parts. The first part is very quick, energetic, instinctive – I build up the composition with sweeping brushstrokes that seem accidental, but they are consciously placed on the canvas. The second part is much slower, I take a long time to decide the exact position of the geometric shape that will bring harmony to chaos.

"Don't overthink it. Let go of any anxiety, tension. Just enjoy it."
I don't need to go anywhere for inspiration, it's enough to listen to music.
