Hi, I'm a painter from Belgrade, Serbia. One of the dominant features of my paintings is order, namely the layout. Each scene, I dare claim with certainty, has a specific place in a hierarchy, just as the constellations, when observed from Earth, appear to us as, for example, a clear shape of Corvus or another archetypal form.

My paintings are assembled into a solidly based peaceful cosmogony deprived of coincidences and arbitrary excesses. In other words, everything in the paintings is either in harmony with its own inner cohesion or is a part of a cosmogonic constellation. Therefore, there is not a single trace of chaos, from which numerous aspects of this modern age, as well as many artistic opuses, suffer.

Another distinctive particularity of my work could be defined as sharpness or meticulousness, whereby I refer to the hallucinating clarity of the depicted scenes. At first sight, my art could be defined as a realism, perhaps even hyper-realism, but a more perceptive eye will quickly notice how incorrect such a classification is. That is the catch, the reason why all the scenes shimmer with a certain ultra-real illumination. What we have here is magical realism, as currently there is not a better nor a more precise term for this occasion.

Is that an animal carcass blended into the tree? (excuse me if I'm way off the mark).

You can feel his struggle to push. I don't know. I am the person who don't appreciate paintings very much but this one has done it. Now I understand.

Hmm, the guy is a bit off. Maybe you used another technique on him. I guess it is realism paired with surrealism. ;) Just kidding!

He describes his paintings as magical places...These are not places where anyone not on drugs dream about
