I am a British full-time oil painter, specialising in figurative subjects, landscapes and still lives. I look for poetry and hidden qualities as much as in the oil paint, textures and colour as I do in my subjects. My art inspires people, so I am delighted to welcome you on my website.
Through my work I try to articulate a visually compelling and thought provoking comment on the human experience, focusing more on the hidden, more profound elements rather than the representation. I explore that through rich and expressive oil paint applications, symbolic use of colour and the intriguing close-ups. My portraits, often only loosely based on myself or people known to me, go beyond likeness in an attempt to appeal to the universal audience. Through my art I do not prescribe but rather direct a viewer to their own experience, which I believe is more valuable and ultimately more memorable.
I live and work in London, UK. After studying architecture in Belgrade, I immigrated to Britain in 1988, where I practised as an architectural illustrator for the first 25 years. Then, between 2011 and 2013, I completed A Levels in fine art at the Leicester FE College and ever since have been working as a painter. I work from life and photos alike and welcome commissions from individuals.
