(1982. Valjevo, RS, former Yugoslavia) is a Serbian visual artist, art director, filmmaker, and independent curator based in Los Angeles, CA. His television career as a director and journalist for Serbian and European TV stations and art programs led him to found the media company Art Documents originally in 2009 as a YouTube Channel. Upon moving to LA in 2017, he developed the project into L.A. Art Documents in collaboration with American interdisciplinary artist Jason Jenn.
Witness in his youth turbulent political unrest and war in the Balkan region, his visual and conceptual artwork advocates for beauty, environmentalism, mental health, and societal transmutation.
His artwork often utilizes a conceptual concentration on wild plants, specifically weeds. The resilient, boundary-defying plants become a metaphor for nature’s powerful ingenuity. Weeds’ conceptualization also applies to humanity’s multiple aspects: its endurance, queer identity, the immigrant experience, and colonization.
Since his first solo exhibition in the National Museum of Valjevo at age fifteen, he has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions. Important cultural institutions where he presented his works are Museum of Art and History in Lancaster and Brea Art Gallery (California, USA); Mall Galleries in London (Great Britain); UNESCO Headquarters and The Institut Suédois in Paris (France); Centre of Contemporary Art in Torun, (Poland); The Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid (CBA), Madrid, (Spain); Belgrade City Museum, Museum of Yugoslavia, Art Pavilion Cvijeta Zuzorić and The White Palace in Belgrade, (Serbia).
