Art was always a part of my life or my life was always part of the art. Visual communication through different art forms was my kind of expression as communication with the world. Over the years I had artistic interests that took me to explore and learn from great museums and teachers of the world.

I started with Private Art School, where I was taught in Classical Arts. Then High School for Industrial Design; an altogether amazing experience with Drawing and Painting, Sculpture, Theory of Form, Industrial Design, etc.
University of Art in Belgrade was the next dimension in knowledge and experience. Faculty of Applied Arts and Design, where I spent five great years, had professors that were part of the history in their respective fields. Furniture design and time spent in the workshop where we built the models, altogether with photography classes where we used large format cameras as well. It was an overwhelming influx of information to build knowledge necessary for involvement in any art field. We explored all the classical visual arts again on a different level of engagement. I specialized and got a Masters degree in Interior Architecture but the level of knowledge, we acquired, was much deeper and was spread over the multi disciplined art-world. Now I am saying thank you to the amazing teachers, that propelled us, art-hungry souls, in our quest towards creation.

Traveling, different cultures and colours of their art became part of the imagery I was creating altogether with my sensibility for ancient cultural heritage. 

The first art I produced professionally was while still in school. It all started with fine art drawings, posters and big billboards hand painted for theatrical shows. Drawings for books and self thought presentation renderings for Architecture and Graphic Design followed after university. Then I was traveling and working from Belgrade, Yugoslavia; Boston, Massachusetts; Paris, France; to Vancouver, BC where I settled for the last fifteen years. In my work I was involved in Architectural project presentation and illustration (, Graphic Design (, Fine Arts ( and here one more of my passions Photography. When you have so much energy, experience and love for Art, you deploy universal artistic principles in any art form you believe in, and create. I feel Art has the power of a healer, sensibility of inspiration, universality of creation, passion for the unexplored and enormous love for diversity. That is why I feel Art was and will always be, the initial spark for every human step towards exploration of the universe and evolutional transformation.

bits from personal history:
”Flexaret automat”  by Meopta was my first camera that my Dad introduced to me when I was six years old. He taught me how to assume stable position with both hands holding camera from the bottom at waist height. It’s a TLR (twin lens reflex) camera. Viewing window is on top of camera and you compose your image looking from the top. Oddly enough, that’s the most vivid memory I have of my Dad, hovering on top of me and holding camera together with me. After forty years Flexaret found it’s way to always stay with me.
