Jakić Vojislav (Serbia)

1932-2003

     
  Jakić Vojislav - Multi-titled Painting   He was born in Radobilje near Kavadarci (Macedonia) in 1932. He began doing art in 1954. After a whoe cycle of shelves, he completely devoted himself to drawing unusual scrolls. From 1960 until his death he did more than ten thousand drawings which were sometimes fifty meters long. There he finally found the rest for his soul and embodiment of his phantasmagoria. He most often did in Indian ink, felt-pen, and rarely used colour, pastel or gouache. He often added his own conclusion as a supplementary media, to make his observations more intensive. He transmitted his bitter obsessions and "memento mori" atmosphere into his ‘rolls’, as he used to call his endless stories. For one of the longest he said “This is neither a drawing nor a painting – it is a condensed sorrow!” This strange, “black man” as he was called because of the colour of his clothes, draw attention as unpleasant news, and personification of the persecuted and the betrayed, while his anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures flourished, as if under the radiation of human enmity.   Strong linearism of hallucinate, multiplied texture without a beginning and an end creates unique atmosphere where the powerful presence of the artist’s sensuality and agony is felt. Tubular forms of organic ornaments create unique arabesques abundant with optical effects, either pulling the form deep, or drawing it from a flat surface. Jakić used allegory, a symbol and a metaphor as a means of contemplation.
He enjoyed great respect worldwide a great while ago, while his works are on permanent display at most famous Art Brut galleries and museums. His most significant works are in "Collection de l Art brut" in Lausanne. On the Tenth International Biennial of Naïve and Marginal Art at MNMA in Jagodina, Serbia in 2001, he was awarded Grand Prix for the Exhibited Works.
