Boban Andjelkovic

Born 1975 in Serbia, lives and works in Munich

An intensive grappling with issues of pop culture and art history in the neo-expressive painting of Boban Andjelkovic is just as essential as his self-reflective, painterly experience. The artist combines figurative references and an abstract formal language and raises basic questions concerning the meaning of painting as a contemporary medium. His works, sometimes grotesque and unbridled, sometimes humorous, stand in the tradition of “Bad Painting”. At the same time, new aesthetic connections are developed and combined with conceptual approaches. Behind his naïve-seeming depictions lies a critically reflective attitude and an awareness of current social phenomena.
