BIO - CV - CONTACT Bojana for more information.
"Art is my expression of cumulative truth."
Bojana (b. Serbia, 1974) immigrated to the United States with her family in the early 1980s throughout which she was active in various arts, sciences, and athletics. Her entropic schedule carried on through her collegiate time at Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University) and William Paterson University from which she graduated magna cum laude in 2003.
Over the course of the last two decades, Bojana worked as a tattoo artist (1999-2005), art gallery owner (2007-2008), volunteer and executive board member at a 501(c)(3) art organization (2009-2011), AAM certified permanent make-up artist (2010-2014), freelance graphic artist (1994-2019), entrepreneur, mother, and interdisciplinary artist. Bojana has been actively exhibiting her artwork since 2008. She most recently had a solo exhibition at M Galleries in Washington, NJ entitled, TimeWindows: Perspective Nouveau (2020).
In April 2021, also at M, Bojana will be presenting her first installation since Isolated Essence (2000) which similarly used web-like imagery, although to impart a converse idea. While the 2000 show was about isolation and loneliness, the Sacred Hearts Show revolves around connection and unity conveyed through the use of the iconic heart.
Originally scheduled to exhibit in April 2020 but thwarted by the Coronavirus pandemic, the immersive installation can no longer be so as ⅓ of the works are not conducive to our current social distancing rules, although that is subject to change. Instead, an exploratory menagerie of hearts will examine the essence of our humanity through an intellectual lens in an ever-changing technological age.
The Sacret Hearts Show is the transition between Bojana’s phased works. Phase II, her current phase of artworks will include futuristic overtones with a thematic space-time foundation reflecting her theories about the subject.
