I was born in Kikinda, Serbia in 1958. I am physician, specialist in physical therapy, rehabilitation and acupuncture. I am practicing medicine at the City Hospital of Kikinda, Serbia and I am also a painter. I fell in love with art and I started painting in my early teens and I never stopped. I was fortunate to be trained by great masters of the watercolor, which I adopted as my technique of choice. I perfected my artistic sensibilities by studying works of great artists in major galleries of Europe. I had seven solo exhibitions and number of group exhibitions.
My roots are in a small and very special village of Mokrin a few miles north of Kikinda. I like to spend my time there and I consider it to be my spiritual home. Very often the sights and vistas of this village and the surrounding areas are subjects of my paintings. Once, in very distant past, this entire area was covered by the waters of the Panonian Sea. The sea has gone long time ago leaving behind a huge empty, flat space that resonates with energy. I have a strong connection with that space and with the energy of the water.
My themes are space, soil, water and light. When an object or a human figure enters my paintings it is only to highlight the space and its qualities. How do I paint the space? By arranging objects, lights and points of view so they suggest existence and the qualities of the living space. For me, the space is not just absence of objects, but living and vibrant entity graced with beauty, serenity and awe-inspiring silence.
