Regularity seems to play no role in the paper work, canvasses,
glass work, sculptures and installations of Boban Andjelkovic. The
artist experiments with colour and form in as inventive, free and
powerful a way as with his image motifs. Employing expressive,
sometimes even pastose lines and powerful colouring, he creates
unique fantastical creatures, which he presents either alone or in
company within his compositions.
Boban Andjelkovic employs his passionate enthusiasm to bring his
protagonists to life. The imaginary world of the artist is
populated by beings shrunk to the size of a hand puppet or larger
than life-sized figures – often with daring
headgear, red boots, eye masks or acrobat costumes, reminiscent of
famous comic heroes such as Superman and Batman. For example, the
quirky figure with wafting hair and twirling legs, gliding through
the landscape of the image composition on roller skates. Rather
than an illusionistic image space, Andjelkovic employs a poetic
space, generated from sensibility and fantasy, which takes shape
through the interplay between colour and design. The artist finds
inspiration from everyday life, fashion and art history.
Boban Andjelkovic creates a colourful and unconstrained world in
his work. He invites the beholder to enter this world, to cast off
the shackles and cares of everyday life, to let themselves be
carried away by the energy and joie de vivre
– and perhaps be inspired.
