Ivana Milosevic | Tutor at Tuscany in the Frame Italian Workshops

Serbian artist Ivana Milosevic (born 1972) graduated from Belgrade University in 1998 with a Master’s degree in Architecture. Since 2000 she has been a practicing architect in the Municipality of Trstenik, specializing in urban design and city planning. As a deputy Mayor of Trstenik, Ivana transformed the city into a modern and contemporary living environment.

Since starting to paint in 2010, Ivana has exhibited her artworks in numerous group and solo shows in Serbia and internationally. She creates her multi-layered and captivating artworks with a palette knife and brushes, giving them depth and texture.

“Through my professional practice cityscapes are the main theme of my artworks, I explore the structure of the city, explore the construction, visual impressions, through various problems in the city. I put layers and layers of oil paint on canvas, trying to rebuild the parts and pieces, life and its beauty!”

Ivana pays special attention in her artworks to the city’s building structures and facades. She adds soothing silhouettes of people to emphasize a meaning of perspective, the flow of time, and the speed of life. By combining architecture and urbanism with figures and crowds, Ivana strives to make the viewer feel in the present moment and not in the past.

Tuscany is located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Its landscape, artistic heritage and stand-out cities – first among them Florence – make Tuscany an unquestioned protagonist of international tourism. In this region, nature has many different facets, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches, like the Versilia beach, with rocky cliffs and steep headlands. The islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, a crystal-clear sea and rich seabeds, are peerless.

You can admire sceneries of uncontaminated nature in the Apuan Alps and in several protected areas, such as the Orbetello Lagoon, home to many species of migrant birds, including pink egrets.
However, the most typical sceneries of the region are those that merge the beauty of nature with the millenary work of man. The amazing Gulf of Baratti and the sites of Vetulonia, Vulci and Pitigliano guard necropoli and vestiges of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa evoke memories from the Roman Age.

Medieval villages, historical towns, castles and defense systems, country churches (the so-called pievi) and beautiful abbeys, like the one of Sant’Antimo, are scattered all over the territory and their profiles stand out in the landscapes of the Crete Senesi, Orcia Valley, Garfagnana, Chianti and the Maremma.
Finally, Tuscany is full of spas: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni, which offer relaxing holidays thanks to their thermal waters and well-equipped facilities for all types of treatments.
