Focus of my interest is on various aspects of „public“, in my artistic practice as well as in my research. My artistic production is dominantly based on drawing, which I apply to pretty much everything, from paper, canvas, wood to walls. I like to explore possibilities of materials and contexts in everlasting attempts to illustrate and understand subjects that I personally feel affected by, but that are at the same time universal enough for pretty much anybody to empathyze with. I think that art should be approachable and democratic, which is why street art became my primary field of action. Proud co-founder of Rekonstrukcija Street Art Festival.  Worked at the University of Kragujevac for three full semesters, before I realised I feel way better in the studio and out on the street painting. Currently very happy. I live and work in Belgrade.
