From the artist "I create as a way to explore the intangible complexities of human emotions, thoughts, ideas and behaviors. Deep down, it is all an effort to better understand my human experience.
In more complex terms, I create art for various reasons that are deeply intertwined with my personal experiences, emotions, and creative instincts.
First and foremost, my artistic journey is fueled by an innate passion and desire to express myself. Art serves as a medium through which I communicate my emotions, thoughts, and observations about the world around me. It allows me to translate complex feelings and ideas into a visual language that can be shared with others.
Growing up in Sarajevo and later moving to the United States, I have been exposed to diverse cultures, environments, and influences. These experiences have shaped my artistic vision and sensibilities. Art allows me to explore my personal history and identity while also connecting with the broader human experience.
Furthermore, my art serves as a means to challenge my creative boundaries and continuously evolve as an artist. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques, styles, and mediums, which drives me to push beyond my comfort zone and develop new skills. This growth-oriented mindset is essential to my creative process, as it keeps me engaged, curious, and eager to learn.
In addition to self-expression and personal growth, I also create art to inspire and evoke emotions in others. I strive to create visually striking and thought-provoking pieces that engage the viewer on both an emotional and intellectual level. My artwork often features dreamlike imagery and intricate details, which invite the viewer to delve deeper and explore their own interpretations.
Lastly, as an artist, I feel a responsibility to contribute to the larger creative community and share my unique perspective. Through my work, I hope to inspire other artists, challenge conventional norms, and contribute to the ongoing dialogue within the world of art.
In essence, I create art as a means of self-expression, personal growth, and connection with others. It is an essential aspect of my identity and a driving force in my life, as it allows me to explore my emotions, experiences, and creative instincts while also engaging with the world around me."
