Born in Sarajevo on December 7th, 1963, as the son of an international chess champion, Dejan discovered the intellectual art world at a very young age. By the time he was five-years-old, he had painted his first still-life series. After his graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo, the artist moved to study in Italy, where he had received a grant from the prestigious “Studio Art Centers International” (short SACI), in Florence.
Using the traditional medium of oil on canvas, Dejan has always played with various colors and artistic expressions, but he continues to experiment with the female form.
He still hasn’t left the city and continues to live and work in Florence as a professional oil painter and his painting are in many private and public collections all around the world (Collection of Museum of Modern Art Bejing…)
