âIt is possible, however, that the artist is both thin-skinned and prophetic and, like the canary lowered into the mine shaft to test the air, has caught a whiff of something lethal.â â Walker Percy, Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book
EROS THANATOS II
I am honored to have one of my major drawings selected to be part of this large First Biennale of Fantastic Art in Serbia, (as one of two foreign guest artists, the other being Reinhard Schmid of Germany) to take place in Belgrade at the Kolarac gallery and later in Novi Sad at the Cultural center (where I exhibited before in a group show Antilogika Slike in 2015).
5 Years ago (2017) after I created this work at the Pigmalion Artist Colony - it is in the collection of the founder of Pigmalion, Gorazd Cuk who will lend it to this exhibition.

'Phoenix Collection MihajloviÄ'
'Phoenix Collection MihajloviÄ' is an imposing, family collection, lovingly selected authentic paintings and drawings, which in the right way represents the best contemporary artists in Serbia. It combines representative works of renowned artists of different generations and sensibilities, successors of cultural heritage - in favor of the traditional, fantastic but also out-of-appearance. The uniqueness of this collection, which includes over 140 oil paintings and more than 50 drawings, lies in the refined, careful selection of individual works, from the rich opuses of contemporary painters.
