“WHAT IS REAL IS NOT THE EXTERNAL FORM, BUT THE ESSENCE OF THINGS… IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO EXPRESS ANYTHING ESSENTIALLY REAL BY IMITATING ITS EXTERIOR SURFACE.”
Predrag lives and works in the Netherlands. He is a contemporary visual artist, creating with the range of mediums and techniques. After two decades in interactive design and digital graphics/art, Predrag shifted towards the fine arts practice. His primary focus is on the inner states of the subjects through juxtaposition of the structured chaos and deconstructed order. Additionally, he’s interested in the effects of technology onto our individual and collective identity, and in the correlation of the material (analogue) and virtual (digital) as the platform for the discourse about materiality-potentiality (object-idea).
His creation process is full of struggle, but rewarding, ending with more questions than answers, opening new subjects to explore.
He is a member of the Governing Board of ULUPUDS (The Applied Artists and Designers Association of Serbia), SIGGRAPH and MENSA.
