Figurative painter exploring the relationship between man-made environment, landscape and human form.
 Limbs and other parts of the body often detached, or multiple figures intertwined , blending with steel pipes, plant stems and flowers. I’m inspired by gender fluidity, body transformation and human connection with our environment and technological progress. Paintings are colorful and vibrant.  I paint large format oil on canvas and mix media where I  experiment with cutting and destroying canvas, implementing twine and silicon strings  in order to make something beautiful out of disorder and vice versa.  I like that play with contradictions: ugly and beautiful, strong, masculine objects and feminine landscape.
Those two elements of man made urban environment and nature, are deeply rooted in my life.
After getting sick with Scarlatina in kindergarten, I spent my early years painting and playing in my grandmother’s garden, rather than my peers, barely speaking until age 7.
My analytical research-like contact with nature that I had early on as a child, while spending time in Maize Research Institute where my father was working as an Agriculture scientist, keeping him company while he spent hours in the fields looking closely at plants and changes that appear on their leaves, contributed to my unique artistic take on the coexistence of plants and the urban world..
I​ ​was​ ​born and raised​ ​in​ ​Belgrade, Serbia,​ ​when​ ​my​ ​peaceful​ ​childhood​ ​swiftly​ ​turned​ ​into​ ​an​ ​unsecure​ ​existence in​ ​a​ ​war-torn​ ​country.​ ​Daily​ ​images​ ​of​ ​war,​ ​scarcity​ ​of​ ​food​ ​and​ ​eventually​ the ​NATO​ ​bombing​ ​in 1999​ ​are​ ​my​ ​memories​ ​of​ ​that​ ​time. The​ ​destruction​ ​I​ ​witnessed​ ​in​ ​Serbia ​has​ ​a​ ​parallel ​for​ ​me ​with ​the​ ​destruction​ ​we​ ​all witness​ ​in​ ​our​ ​environment.​ I​ ​often depict​ ​abandoned​ ​places,​​cold​ ​concrete​ ​architecture, dirty​ ​garages​ ​and streets​ ​which​ ​resemble​ ​the​ ​destroyed​ ​buildings​ ​that​ ​still​ ​scatter​ ​Belgrade​ ​to​ ​this​ ​day ​due​ ​to​ ​the bombing.​ ​ Growing​ ​up​ ​in​ ​a​ ​once​ ​powerful​ ​proud​ ​country​ ​that​ ​was​ ​disintegrating​ ​into​ ​chaos, influences​ ​my​ ​current​ ​work.
