Miroslavo’s Artist Statement
“Art for me is an opportunity to express and share freely how I feel in today’s society. Usually, I create a new canvas when I experience something new in my life or have a need to express an opinion on fundamental characteristics of human nature. I express these thoughts and emotions using simple, playful yet symbolic abstract shapes and colours. By doing this, I’m inviting the viewer to interact with my paintings in his own subjective way.
I never went to art school, so I simply learn by painting whatever I feel like painting and I try to take risks and reach new personal grounds with every piece. I believe that life is an infinite journey of learning, growing and creating, and I embrace the present to make the most of it.
As an artist, I have been influenced by the works, creativity, perseverance, and lives of Leonardo Da Vinci, Joan Miró, Piet Mondrian, Frida Kahlo, William Turner, Alexander The Great, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Vincent Van Gogh.
I dedicated 29 years of my life to finding what makes me truly happy and the search was over when I picked up a brush 2 years ago, creating my first canvas called Road to Happiness.“ – Miroslavo.
