ERNEST ZACHAREVIC

My inspiration comes from a constant observation of an everyday life. New experiences and challenges give me a different perspective to both my studio practice and street art. Therefore subjects and mediums are always changing. Public art is my passion in life, it allows me to reach the audience undefined by it’s social background. It can be seen by everyone who passes by and is not confined to a narrow audience who visits galleries.
I see my work as an experience rather than an object. I take time to study the audience as much as the subjects of my work. Directing the possible encounters of the people who see my work and the artwork is a game and a challenge I enjoy.
After years of training as a painter in a very traditional school of arts I developed a need to shift my focus away from improving painting skills and techniques to exploring the flexibility of medium to match the subject. Now my art practice is a collage of different mediums. I always try to focus on the content and the context of my work and not to limit myself by a medium. I put a lot of research into my work: take photographs, observe architecture, people, landscape and translate this into an artwork.
