Biography

Biography

Born in Europe/ Serbia. I am what people call a self-taught artist. My love for drawing and painting came up in my early childhood. Encouraged by fellow artists from 2005 I have taken painting as a profession. I exhibited numerous times in India as well as abroad. I work mostly with Oil, I use all the shades of the color spectrum; perhaps, this vibrancy of colors is the one thing that I adhere to.

My inspiration can come from just about anywhere, thus, I refuse to confine to one theme or one method of painting.
I believe that there is no limit to one's growth in aesthetic creativity for the committed perfectionist, as such, I strive to create ever better and newer canvases.
I hold an opinion that work of art is to be judged by the result which it has upon the viewer, thus I strive to create works free of boredom or shallowness. I often pack my canvas in multitude of meanings; as if trying to put in more than a thousand words per canvas.

I used to live in Bangalore/ India, thus most of my subjects depict people of India reflecting on Indian traditions and values.

Few Inspiring quotes:

"My instinct about painting says, 'if you don't think about it, it's right.' As soon as you have to decide and choose,it's wrong. And the more you decide about, the more wrong it gets." ~ Andy Warhol
