He is a self-taught painter, who used literature from the Belgrade Academy of Fine Arts and the exercises of Albert Durer for his art education. He studied art during a long period of early youth and was assisted by several renowned Montenegrin artists. He continues to study art, focusing on surrealistic art. He graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Montenegro in Podgorica.
I approach painting through fantastic forms in an attempt to draw out the human essence to the canvas. In the space between myself and the painting, I experience myself as a crucified man; neither on heaven nor on earth. For me, surrealism is a gentle fluid that breathes life into the limitless playground of reality.
