Bojan Jevtić is a Serbian visual artist, born and raised in Belgrade. He is known especially for his complex portraits of women in a variety of settings. Although there are elements of reality in his work, there is also the sense that what he is illustrating is not exactly of this world either, or if it is, then it is of this world in a way not usually perceived. He sees in women intrigue and excitement, and it is those things that he tries to put down onto canvas. Bojan work can be on Saatchi Art and also in amongst other sites and publications including Artfido, Artfinder, Shadowness, and Onlyunique. In Bojan’s work, you are looking at a vision of a vision. Something has been seen here, mirrored, and then its mirror has been seen in sequence. His work is magical and unsettling, but at the same time shows the modern lives of todays world in which we live.
