In our interview today, we would like to introduce to you the sculptor, Milorad Mića Stajičić. Humorously and cheekily, he makes fun of our culture and modern lifestyle, not allowing them to remain ignored, which is why Mića is often the subject of sharp criticism and even censorship.
After graduating from the Faculty of Organisational Sciences, Mića enrolled at the Faculty of Fine Arts and studied sculpture under Professor Mrđan Bajić. Nevertheless, in addition to actively engaging in art, he didn’t neglect IT and he successfully runs his own company in Belgrade. In 2017, with Ksenija Marinković, he opened the X Vitamin Gallery at the Students Square, a new space where contemporary artists from our country can exhibit their work.
In order to make easier the process of permanent export of artwork, for all of you who bought art work in Serbia, here is a short text with all the necessary instructions for carrying out this task. The procedure is really simple and does not take too much time or money.

Today we are talking with the artist Milica Prelić. In addition to the exceptional visual impression of her works, her choice of materials is extremely interesting.

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.
