Srđan Arsić

Biography

Srđan Arsić was born in Belgrade, Serbia, where he graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts. In his work he is moving between traditional and contemporary, comic and critique.

Srđan has curious and intuitive approach to themes, that usually arise from pop culture. This kind of approach brings author to the paradoxical solutions. Srđan’s wokrs are above all interesting, unexpected and imaginative. He builds his visual language in an urban model, which characteristic for the street art of metropolises. His manner is close to the pop culture, and he transmits it into elite one in a fantastic way. Therefore, it is not surprising that Arsić is focused, among other things, on the packaging, to whom he gives new value, durability and sense.

Geometric forms of industrial packaging become artistic objects abstracted through the monolithic material, however preserved to the last detail and faithful to their prosaic model.  Srđan brings us to the border between current and eternal, expensive and worthless, simple and sublime. As observers, Srđan is keeping in the moment of this encounter, pointing, through his artistic expression, to the relativity of each of these concepts.
