Aleksandar is a non-media specific artist and graphic designer, and has been a restless traveller for the past decade.
After studying in Düsseldorf, he graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2009, with a focus on typography and a love for the bold statement.
Living and working in different metropolises including Paris, Berlin, New York, Vienna, Barcelona and Mexico City, Aleksandar loves to discover smaller, less known places. In recent years he has spent considerable time in East German Görlitz and Zeitz, Bosnian Bijeljina and Tuzla, Spanish Villanueva del Rosario and Murcia, Portuguese Messejana, Russian Kirillov, Georgian Omalo and Finnish Kärsämäki.
In Aleksandar’s work, he explores cultural structures and how they interact with his own multinational identity as well as with the ones of other nations he embrace.
His practice is deeply rooted in his experience as an immigrant, exploring the cultural tensions and structural shifts that occur within an ever-evolving Europe.
Aleksandar now spends some time of the year based out of Bosnia & Herzegovina, where he is building a house, but it’s a life on the road that fuels most of the inspiration for his projects.
