Marija Nikolic

Marija Nikolic

Born: 1989

Hometown: Velika Plana

Based in: Belgrade

Marija Nikolic is an emerging visual artist born in Serbia in 1989. After graduating from art school Tehnoart Beograd, jewelry department, in 2009 she entered the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, where she obtained a Master’s degree in Painting in 2015.
Upon completing the studies she participated in a number of group exhibitions, had five solo shows and took part in a few art colonies. Marija has been a member of the Association of Fine Artists of Serbia since 2020. She currently lives and creates in Belgrade, Serbia.

Her current visual expression is deeply rooted in the aesthetic thought of abstract minimalism and postminimalism. She explores the possibilities of a framed and clear geometric form, creating artworks on paper and canvas. The starting point of her work, which revolves around the exploration of perfect proportions, values, shapes, and color harmony, is a minimalistic approach and reexamination of the form of painting.

More About Marija Nikolic

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I create artworks on paper and canvas by exploring the possibilities of a framed and clear geometric form. The starting point is a minimalistic approach and reexamination of the form of painting in an effort to reach aesthetic harmony. By focusing on a single point of light and by building the painting around it, I’m exploring the descriptive boundaries of a coloured surface.

Where do you go for inspiration?

Inspiration can come from anywhere, but it’s not required in order to start with my work. Sometimes a hint of inspiration might happen while I’m painting, and not before. My process is very systematic and does not depend on inspirative moments, but relies on ideas and visualizations.
