I am Dragana Debeljakovic. An artist, a teacher and a journalist.
Born on December 24th in Krusevac Serbia, I graduated from the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Department of Painting, in 1996.
My paintings can be found in museums in Krusevac and Ruma, Serbia.
I base my work on my belief that the world is exactly as we choose to see it:
Each of us chooses our own reality – consciously or unconsciously.
Your reality is as real as mine and any other.
Our choice of reality defines the way we participate in the world.
Our choice of reality defines who we are.
I paint with oil on canvas. I draw on my paintings. I use my digital brush on photos of my paintings. I print them out and maybe draw some more – you get the picture. The means are endless, and endlessly fun. The goal is always to share my reality with you.
I took part in more than 30 group-exhibitions, and made the following on my own:
1998: Likovni salon Kulturnog centra Novog Sada
1998: Umetnicka galeria Narodnog muzeja Krusevac
