Milaković Zlatko

Fine Artist Section

His art pursues many different topics, but preference is given to the woman and her beauty, in the world of silence and harmony. Milakovic’s work is on the border within realism and hyperrealism. If he works with oil on canvas, on one painting, he works for around months. It is hard to come by to his paintings in the European galleries. The reason is simple. He works on one painting for a long time and after exposure in the gallery, the painting quickly founds a buyer.

Milakovic taught sculpture in Zagreb (Croatia, Center for Contemporary Art) and painting in studios of several world-renowned artists-teachers.

Zlatko Milakovic has been living in a very dynamic way. In his youth, he was a top athlete (javelin thrower, champion), later manager of the famous banking group, insurance company, the national association of business managers, etc. By the age of 18, he has moved with his family and has been living in nine different cities in 4 different countries. He has a Master’s Degree in Political Science and has been additionally trained by programs of world-renowned business schools.

Shreim David Mohamad

Fine Artist Section

Throughout my work I’m questioning everyday life. Stimuli of the environment are encouraging the creative impulse and the necessity for expression. Creative desire is manifested through creation and expression that may not always be confined to the object (or surface area); it may be behavioral or alive. By expressing myself throughout my work I am discovering something new and I am actually questioning my own level of consciousness.

There are different levels of consciousness and they are often highly subjective views of personal experiences of the individual. I am fascinated by the differences of the factual reality of an object and its human added value that each object is highlighted with. There are numerous differences in the truth of the existence of an object and the way it is subjectively interpreted. These differences are one of my fascinations. Throughout the creative process I am aiming to reach the bare truth of my surroundings and of my own understanding of it in relation to the factual.
