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.
