Реч аутора

Сва моја захвалност Творцу који ми даде снаге да величам Његово Стварање, и што ме створи у овoм свету да могу да Га поздравим на овај начин.

Хвала господи која се трудише да ме упознају са светом. Хвала и кући која то омогући.

Resisting urbanism

ljubinka_savcic.jpgAs a response to the pressures of the snare-city walls, the colorful landscape of Serbia is found on my paintings. The forests of Rajac, the sites surrounding Morava, the pines of Zlatibor, without people and timeless, are constant motives.

I call you to get to know nature the way I see it through the veil of lyrical handwriting.

Boza IlicBiografija

Boza Ilic pripada istaknutim jugoslovenskim slikarima druge polovine XX veka. Akademiju likovnih umetnosti zavrsio je u klasi velikog slikara i pedagoga Mila Milunovica. Njegovo ime je vezano za posleratno srpsko slikarstvo, kada mu oko 1947. likovni kriticari i teoreticari toga vremena samovoljno dodeljuju idejno-politicke kvalitete i proglasavaju ga vodecim predstavnikom socijalistickog realizma. Obzirom da je jos u detinjstvu u potpunosti izgubio sluh, nije imao mogucnosti (a ni interesovanja ) za ucesce u politickim diskusijama ili bilo kakvim raspravama, pa bi se moglo reci, da on nije razumeo ni to svoje mesto ni tezinu uloge koja mu je bila dodeljena.

Alex Dzigurski February 1, 1911 - November 21, 1995

By Milana Karlo Bizic

One of America's greatest artists of Serbian extraction, Alexander Dzigurski, recently passed away in San Francisco, near his beloved Pacific Ocean. Dzigurski was an internationally known artist, famous for his unique and colorful seascapes. He was blessed with a prolific talent for capturing the action and color of the sea on canvas. One of his larger canvases (36"x48"), called "From Sea to shining Sea," hangs in the Franklin Mint Museum. It was painted in 1976, in honor of the nations Bicentennial, when the Franklin Mint Gallery of American Art commissioned him "as America's finest painter of the sea" to paint his expression of the sea that bounds the beauty of this noble land.
