Abstract Painter/抽象畫畫家
About My Works
As we all perceive the world in our own way, so do we perceive each work of art independently and form our own ideas about what that work presents. The object of my work is not the motif itself but the effect of the colors and form combined, which can be perceived in a multitude of ways, depending soly on the viewers own imagination. My goal is to inspire new thought and creativity in the viewer, letting him form his own vision through the colors, patterns and strokes in front of him. I like to think that my viewers and I create art together because we are both part of a story that wouldn’t exist without our collective imagination.

My greatest inspiration are the people around me and the energy that we share. Each painting is a reproduction of a specific moment in my life, an homage to events that occurred and a memory of the people that were by my side.

關於我的作品
大家都以自己的方式認識世界,所以我們對每件藝術作品的感知也都是獨立的,且對於作品所呈現的是什麼皆有自己的想法。我的作品不是主題本身,而是顏色和形式相結合的效果,可以用諸多方式來感知,取決於觀者自己的想像。我的目的是啟發觀看我作品的人產生新的想法與創造性,讓他們透過色彩,圖案與筆觸,形塑他們自己的幻想。我喜歡認為觀賞我作品的人和我是一起創造藝術的,因為我們都是一個故事的部份,要是我們共通的想像不存在,這些故事就不會存在了。

我最大的靈感是我周遭的人以及我們共同分享的能量。每張畫都是我生命中某個特定時刻的再現,是對一個事件表示敬意或是對那些曾在我身邊的人的回憶 。




About the Artist
I grew up in Zagreb, Croatia. Drawing and coloring were my two favorite childhood activities, so it is only natural that eventually I developed an interest in painting and art. After I graduated from the School of Fine Art and Design as a visual designer I became interested in graphic design as well as painting, hoping to successfully combine the two careers. But art and design are not my only passions in life. I also love traveling and adventure, so after living in one place for so long I decided it was time to explore the world. I traveled for a while, but my biggest challenge was coming to Taiwan and starting a new life in a place that is different from where I grew up. So far I have participated in various group exhibitions and art projects in Croatia and Taiwan and am currently working on a new series and preparing works for a new exhibition.

關於藝術家
我生長在克羅埃西亞共和國的札格瑞布市。繪畫和著色是我童年時最喜歡的兩種活動,因此很自然地,我逐漸發展出對繪畫和藝術的興趣。從藝術與設計學院畢業後,我成為視覺設計師,但也開始對平面設計以及繪畫產生了興趣,並希望能成功地將這兩個專業結合起來。但是藝術和設計並不是我生活中唯一的關注,我也喜歡旅行和冒險,所以在一個地方生活了這麼長一段時間後,我認為探索這個世界的時候到了。我旅行了一段時間,但是最大的挑戰是來到台灣,並在這個跟我成長的地方完全不同的城市裡開始新生活。到目前為止,我參加了克羅埃西亞和台灣不同的合展與藝術計劃。目前正在創作一個新的系列,為一個新的展覽作準備。
