Olja Cvijanovic

Fluid art

About the artist:

My name is Olja.

I was raised and born in Belgrade, Serbia.

That is also the place where I finished school.

For the past five years ,

I have lived and worked in Minsk, Belarus,

as a senior architect, and I love it and enjoy every day of it.

Education

I have graduated from University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture – Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering in 2008.

In the next two years, when I was 24, I reached my second degree from University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture – Master of Science in Architectural Engineering in 2010.

Currently I am living and working in Minsk, Belarus.

I work as a full-time architect.

Architecture is a beautiful discipline, where one has a chance to materialize ideas in the fields of architectural design, interior design, urbanism, urban planning, architectural engineering and technologies.

Inspiration

Through the paintings I create my own parallel universe.

I let pictures from the subconscious or almost forgotten memories, from my early childhood or even before,

to swim out on the surface.

This is where my inspiration comes from the unknown. Ideas for my art are born trough the special sense of composition, beauty and proportions.

Dominant line of my creation is personification of the creatures of the world from the beyond, supernatural goddess, light angels, from the world where harmony and divine order reign – motives of the strange creatures from the other world, from the unknown parallel universes.

The place, where good giants live in their own kingdoms, among the birds in the white cloudy sky, or among fish in deep blue waters.

Where everything is blissful and bright, where everything happens for a reason, and where there are no regrets.

The place under the tender eye and guidance of the Saints from all religions ever existed from the beginning of time till today, or even of God himself. The place under the warm ray of Sun, where friendships are made for life, and Planets are turning in their own dance.

Technics

Currently I am working on canvas with acrylic paint.

This technique allows me to combine several other techniques.

as well as the density and solidness of oil paint with the floating lightness of watercolors.

Also, I love to create in mixing techniques, using watercolors with markers, color pencils, ink pens etc.

My painting personificate creatures of the world from the beyond,

supernatural goddess, light angels, from the world where harmony and divine order reign.

Maybe,

their number one goal and purpose is to bring harmony and sense of order in the spaces where they would be.

To open a window to a better, kinder, more sensible world.
