Untill now, I got several domestic awards for printmaking, made eight one man show exhibitions in Yugoslavia and one in Germany.

 

During my life I traveled all around western Europe, but wisiting Holland affected my work wery strong. It was multiple influence. Past, saved in museums, paintings of Vermeer, Rembrant with his etchings, Van Gog, landscapes of Van Ostade, and steel alive motives of Villiam Klez Hede, in combination vith unusual light of presence assured me that searching of world of reality is one of my most important tasks and devotions. Even from the early childhood, I feel wery strong wish to recognize and somehove preserve feelengs made by waching the real world, especialy the light in confrontation with the dark sequences. Ever changeing lingh trought the different objects of reality. The light object interplay. It was, and steel is my great wish to make observer of my work feels the same fealing I have during printing , drawing or painting. My idea is to make a kind of ¨trigger¨, using techniques and magic of classical painting, printmaking and drawing. I belive in mastership and exselence. Idea and mastership are of equal importance for me.

My prints are old fashoned etchings, aquatint and sometimes with mezzotint parts, on 100% cotton, 300 grams solid Hahnemühle (German paper for printmaking).

Paintings are on solid, usualy wery old wood, with oil colors, framed in hand made frames, with inserted litle sculptures, reliefs, gemes and cameas of diferent kind of stones. (little sculptures are made by myself, of course.) Drawings are at high quality paper , painted by watercolors, tempera, and acrylics. They are best sold items and often in private collections right now I have only one, but hope to make some soon.
