For Wolf Art this week, we talked to Belgrade artist, Marija Zdravković. In January, she had a solo exhibition at the Cultural Centre in Novi Sad.
In the interview below, learn more about Marija’s paintings, her views on developments in the art world, as well as her encounter with performance art.
Mihael completed his Bachelor and Master studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, and then went on to do his postgraduate studies at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.
Although we have today chosen mainly his paintings, his artistic works include sculptures, photographs, installations and video works.
His works are found in numerous international collections, including the following: The Ludwig Museum, Vienna, the Solo collection, Madrid, the SIEMENS collection, Vienna, the Esterhazy collection, Eisenstadt, the Azark collection, Marrakech, the Museum of Industry and Fine Arts, Saint Etienne.
Our New Year interview is with Mark Tubić, a multi award-winning painter from Zrenjanin who lives and works in Belgrade. According to him, he doesn’t create works in a series – they are created in the moment, without previous sketches. They are in a small format, although in the photographs they seem bigger.
After his studies at the Faculty of Mining and Geology, Marko enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, and is currently completing his PhD art project under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Milivoje Miško Pavlović.

At the moment in the New Moment Gallery in Belgrade there is an exhibition of drawings by the artist Petar Mirković. And it is no wonder that this exhibition has aroused so much interest among the media and fans of art when you take into consideration the fact that it has been almost seven years since Petar exhibited his work in Belgrade. Even more exciting is the answer to the question “Where has he exhibited?” Well, in all of the world’s great art centres, from Vienna to Paris to Rome to London, as well as cities such as New York, Shanghai and Miami, to name but a few.
We would like to introduce the artist Dejan Živković from Novi Sad, who describes himself as being a self-taught person. After studying design, he tried to find a way to express himself in painting. His latest series of works “Impressions from the Vibrant Jaws of the Shrew” was exhibited in Cultural Centre “Grad” in Belgrade in May, as well as in Novi Sad and Pančevo.
In the text below Dejan tell us the story of his artistic development and creativity.
This week we travelled to Novi Sad, to the studio of Tadija Janičić.
This artist, although predominantly a painter, is also an equally interesting and authentic sculptor. Belgraders had the opportunity to see his exhibition “Easy Pieces” in the gallery “Prototype” last year, and recently he exhibited his work in London.
Marko Gavrilovic graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade and is a painter and sculptor. His works could be seen in May at his solo exhibition Contemporary City, which was held in the gallery Jugoexport, in Belgrade.
For Wolf art, Marko talks about his artistic work, travels and thoughts on the development of contemporary art.
My interviewee today is Predrag Popara, an artist from Trebinje who currently resides between Belgrade and Bucharest. He graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade, and continued his studies in Berlin and Vienna.
