NEBOJSA ZDRAVKOVIC
The Wrestler

Oil on canvas, 16" x 10"

Overall, he says he stands on a middle ground
somewhere between expressionism and impressionism.

Nebojsa Zdravkovic was born in Belgrade in 1959. From the age of 8 he attended a special school for gifted children, where he learned to draw , paint, and make small sculptures in terracotta and in ceramic. It was on his 10th birthday on July 21st 1969, that the first men stepped onto the surface of the moon. Three years later the Apollo 11 crew visited Belgrade and Nebojsa's work was selected to be given as a present to Neil Armstrong.

Armstrong and his "Thank you" letter, being a beautiful reminder from that period. Another great influence in his life was his grandmother, who was a talented artist in her own right, even though she did not have an art education. Today Nebojsa still possesses some of her small oils she painted as a young student, and a beautiful copper lantern which he uses regularly as a prop in his paintings. Whilst at school he used to sing in operas in the Belgrade National Theater, and as a child he was proud to sing the main role of the boy Sam in Benjamin Britten’s opera “Little Sweep”. Music is still an important and necessary passion in his life.

Nebojsa's education was competed at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Belgrade University and he received his Masters Degree in 1986. In 1991, he won a scholarship from the Spanish government to study in Madrid. Later he spent alot of time in Greece where his paintings became imbued with the colours of the Mediterranean. He held his first solo exhibition in Athens in 1989, and one of his paintings is in the collection of the City Art Gallery, Athens.

Since his childhood, Nebojsa has sought to understand the deepest secrets of tiny differences between nuances of colour. His range of work includes nudes, portraits and landscapes. He says he is "walking slowy through expressionistic and impressionistic ways of using colours.

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
