Predrag (Yugoslavia, 1974) lives and works in the Netherlands. He is a visual artist, who uses the range of mediums and techniques (painting, drawing, video/installations, sculpture, interactivity, code). Predrag is researching the effects of technology onto our individual and collective identity, with focus on how it influences/changes the role of the artist or the designer in the future. Currently, this interest is reflected in his research of the artificial intelligence as a ‘creative prosthesis’, and the possibility of a collaborative creative process involving human and AI. Furthermore, he uses the tension between the material (analogue) and virtual (digital) as a platform for the phenomenological discourse about materiality-potentiality (object-idea).
His creation process is full of struggle, but rewarding, leading to new questions, 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.
