Ljubomir Popovic

Biography from the Archives of askART

Ljuba  Popovic (born 1934 in Tuzla)

One of the creators of the Surrealist movement in Belgrade and the head of Serbian painters in Paris.  After the study of beaux arts in Belgrade, Popovic and some friends created an avant-garde group named Mediala in 1960.  At that time his style of mixing a quasi pointillist technique and the great rectangular surfaces was already well known.  Ljuba Popovic often mixes the female body, architecture and surrealist forms in a rare color intensity, expressing the relationships of desire and death, purity and chaos,  microcosm and macrocosm. 

He settled in Paris and frequently holds exhibitions there, as well as around the world.
