Milan Zulic (Sombor, 1972)
Multi-disciplinary artist based in Switzerland. Through a variety of media his work explored possibility for creativity out of silence and emptiness of heart. Before creating art, he have to be so humble, almost nobody, a hollow bamboo. In this absence, there comes a great universal flood. That flood can become poetry, a painting, music, a dance, a sculpture. Thousands of dimensions are available, Milan just trying allow it, simply allow it the universe to flow through him. Over the past 30 years he has been receiving many international awards and recognitions. His paintings, sculptures, photography, video, extended media has been shown on 32 solo exhibitions and more than 250 collective exhibitions in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Podgorica, Rijeka, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Napoli, Trieste, Piran, Gdansk, Varna, Sofia, Athens, Skopje, Barcelona, Valencia, Málaga, Marseille, Zürich, Warsaw, Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Shillong, Kochi, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Leon, Toluca, Coventry, Cairo, Walparaiso, Camagüey, Coimbra, Vila Nova de Famalicão, Newark, Vancouver, Long Island City, Sao Luis, Rennes, Nantes, St Malo, Maubeuge, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Antwerp, Liège, Nenagh, Luxembourg, Moscow, Amorgos, Sikinos, Kalamata, Zanjan, Guadalahara, Monterrey, Mexico City, Rome, New York City, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur …
This artist, who cannot be measured by the volume of works and exhibitions, is not only someone with an enormous artistic potential but also someone who’s best work is to come…
These photographs, that are no more photographs, impres not only in their sheer volume but they (in their new form)
also provide an all together different visual dimension/perspective.
the artist had used photographic waste (old unwanted
photographs) upon wich he applied various acids and hydrogen peroxides thus creating kaleidostopic shapes that were
then turned into drawings by careful and uneven removal of the surface. the author allows
the original photographic pigment to show in places so that in turn they reflect his intuitive artistic expression.
Eleven thousand images speak for eleven thousand miniature works of art and within eleven thousand photographs there
are as many associative, geometric and expressive abstractions.
with their unusual slits, splits and cuts, these photos visually verbalise thoughts on warm summer breeze,
traveling and as such represent lucid imprints of images incarnated within the abstract and imaginative surrounding.
all this proves that this artist, who cannot be measured by the volume of this exhibition, is not only someone with an
enormous artistic potential but also someone who's best work is to come...
