About Calligraphy

Love for calligraphy, as a branch of art, in my life has been connected with beautiful handwriting and cherishing Cyrillic, the national writing of my people. In that sense, one part of my work is directed towards the spiritual traditional texts and through those texts I try to preserve and prolong the values of calligraphy that are embodied in Serbian traditional art. The pieces are mostly written in “srpski ustav”, an old Serbian type of writing. At the same time, a calligraphic sign is often connected with the stylized picture writing, and today is most commonly found as an element of a modern painting. It provides the feeling of the beauty of form and, at the same time, the strong need to understand a certain contents. Calligraphic sign completely activates both kinds of curiosity combining them into something else, usually with a personal touch.
