Art biography Dušan Savković

Biography

Dušan Savković is one of the most prominent artists of the younger generation, whose works 
should not be left out when talking about the Serbian contemporary art scene.
Critics and art historians have repeatedly agreed on one thing,
Dušan Savković is a painter, sculptor-researcher who in his unique creative work touches on different,
often diametrically opposed values ​​known and present in fine arts, and even those extremes
that we could not qualify and we turn to where exactly they belong in art. Savković's work
is based primarily on asking what the future holds and in which direction the artist's
uncertainty will go. He interprets the notion of the world and the modern poetics of living.
Monumental canvases such as the painting "The Savior" call for lively dialogue and are a
metaphor for the pulsations of life. With diligent, diligent hands, Savković directs us
to the past, present, future, friendship, love, to what flourishes, rushes, madness,
nonsense, laziness, targeted entertainment. The artist has always been there to see,
warn, draw attention, and even ask a worried question, where is he today?
Through his paintings, Savković tells us exactly that, that there are many
more polite, humane things that need to be seen with different eyes and
completely different. Understanding the world as in the painting "Judgment Day"
could be said to be presented in a universal way, measured worthy of attention,
which is somewhere the artist's sacred duty.
