Jovanović Milosav

     
     

Jovanović Milosav (Serbia)

1935-2014

     
  Jovanović Milosav - Stork       He was born in Oparić near Jagodina, in 1935. He began doing painting in 1955. His artistic handwriting is always recognisable and authentic, whether on canvas, paper or wood. He received numerous awards and recognitions, including the "Award for Entire Artistic Work" at the Eleventh Biennial in MNMA, Jagodina, Serbia.
The combination of spontaneous and instinctive presentation of the subject matter and its patient pictorial development is surprising. His inclination towards the decorative and his inner symbolical tension are the base of his artistic strategy. The painter superficially distributes stylised shapes on the surface of the painting, avoiding empty areas and animating them by using characteristic colour signs. These are short strokes in the shape of dots, blots, broken and parallel lines, circles or rhombus. Thereby the intensity of experience is emphasised by the use of raw colouring.
The structure of forms which is especially interesting for the artist reveals his "horror vacui"; therefore, he is persistently devoted to each segment of the coloured pigment, construing miniature cones over the flat surface. His drawings in Indian ink are of special quality within his oeuvre, unique in the idea and procedure. His oeuvre shows condensation of elements of naïve, the so called marginal art.
