Slobodan Boban Djosic
After receiving his B.A. in Painting and Scenography at the Faculty for Applied Arts, University of Arts in Belgrade, Serbia in 1984, Boban Djosic worked for TV Belgrade for several years. In 1987 he received British Council Grant and specialized in Visual Effects with the BBC TV. Following his move to Toronto in 1988 he worked for the CBC TV and independent production companies as an Art Director, Set Designer and Scenic Painter for nearly twenty years. He continued his independent art career as a painter and became a member of Ontario Society of Artists in 2012. Since 1995 he participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Canada and Serbia.
He is inspired by archaeology, fresco paintings and urban decay, and the idea of both transience and timelessness. He is interested in the opposing forces of construction and deconstruction and the beauty of layers formed by the passage of time. He works in mixed media, using diverse means such as acrylics, sand, plaster, metal wire, wax and paper, on canvas and panel.
