An Interview with Bojan Jevtić

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.

Autumn is here

 

Tell us about your journey through the arts so far?

My journey through art has a lot of surprises, very positive surprise for now. I hope it will stay that way. I am looking forward to it .

 

What is it that you like about manipulating a portrait? 

I like the metaphor, sometimes it is  antithesis.  Merging to a new dimension too .

I like to play with it .

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I was born in 1965 in Sheffield and have always enjoyed drawing for as long as I can remember. Art was my favourite subject at school but once I left I took it no further

In the late 80’s I managed to get a job as a cartoonist, working on Pre-school comics,

Drawing every day improved my skills, and after a few years I moved on to work at a computer games company as an animator and games designer.

It was there I began sculpting reference figures for 3D animation.

This would ultimately lead to becoming a freelance sculptor, sculpting anything from Dragons to teddies, animals to action figures.

Years past and sculpting work was getting harder to come by, so I had to turn my back on art and took a job as a painter and decorator.

Maybe it was using brushes everyday that got me itching to try my hand oil painting, once I started I was very lucky that people liked what they saw.

I began to paint seriously from that point and local galleries started to sell my work, now I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Banksy artwork removed in Liverpool.

Banksy artwork removed

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-37410164

Read this on BBC news this has outraged me. The whole point of it being called street art is for it to be seen on the street. It is how Banksy got known for his work. I agree with the street artist when street art goes in a gallery its not the same. Also if we going to do this then maybe we should remove any sculpture’s that are in public stop any street performance. Hey let’s remove all the character from our streets as it should be contained. Has the world gone mad!
