"Art is my expression of all I know to be true."

 

BIOGRAPHY

 

Bojana (b. Serbia, 1974) immigrated to the United States with her family in the 1980s, throughout which she was active in various arts and sciences.  

 

Highlights between 1990-1993 include her first non-representational mixed-media abstraction shown at the Morris Museum, 3rd place at Monmouth University's theater competition, performing at Lincoln Center (NYC), dancing live on Good Morning America, confirming her acceptance to Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University), and a nomination for NJ School of the Arts (Montclair University) which she delightfully attended.  

 

After completing her freshman year at Rutgers (1994), she transferred to William Paterson University.  Shortly after her acceptance into the WPU art program and a substantial compliment from respected art critic and art historian, David Shapiro, Bojana was faced with consecutive tragic losses which altered both the direction of her life and her art for years to come.  Left with few options, she dropped out of college and did not return for three years. Unable to afford a full-time education, she was readmitted into WPU’s fine art program in 1997 and attended part-time, working up to four jobs to pay for her courses until 2003 when she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree sans student loans.

 

For roughly a decade, Bojana worked as a tattoo artist (1999-2005), art gallery owner/operator (2007-2008), volunteer and executive board member at a not-for-profit art organization (2009-2011), AAM certified permanent make-up artist (2010-2014), graphic designer (1994-2019), entrepreneur, mother, and artist.  Bojana has been actively exhibiting her art since 2008.  Two of her minimalist works, #Turn and Onward from the Around the Bend series, were shown at the Artium Gallery in Miami, FL concurrently with Miami Art Week/ Art Basel 2017. 

 

In April 2020, M Galleries will be presenting Bojana’s Sacret Hearts solo exhibition consisting of approximately 30 sculptural mixed-media artworks.  An exploratory menagerie of iconic hearts will examine the emotional, metaphorical, and physical states of the iconic organ through an intellectual lens.  

As she transitions from expressionism into technology-based, minimalistic two and three-dimensional work, Bojana continues to diligently create her way into the future.  In summer 2020, you can expect to see more digital media, holographic technologies, and light sculptures.
