Biography from Richard Beau Lieu & Associates Fine Art Appraisers:
George M. Colovic was born on April 16, 1934 in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia.  He is one of the twelve children born to Milica and Mlanden Colovic.  The core of his youth was immersed working in the Hospitality Industry and later received the honor of graduating from The Culinary Institute in France.  He was deeply involved in the artistic aspects of social life including: Music, Ballet, Poetry, Theater and Painting.  The “Golden Ages” of his youth and artistic introduction were spent at the French Riviera (St. Paul de Vance), between the nineteen fifties and sixties.  This splendid era granted him the opportunity to meet the greatest artists of the 20th century and discover his own passion for painting. He attended many constructive lectures and classes thus exposing him to European painters and thus inspiring him to take the brush and start his own exploration painting on canvas.  He immigrated to the New World, USA in the early nineteen seventies where the journey continued.

Through his professional hard work and dedication he promptly became the owner/chef of La Residence Restaurant, at 1586 First Avenue in Manhattan, New York.  Step by step, La Residence virtually had transformed into an art gallery with works on view during Saturday and Sunday brunch.  The artists were invited to present, describe and discuss their works with interested patrons and other artists.  He strongly believed that many of those artists were destined for lasting fame and that perhaps their work will be discovered on the walls of his restaurant.   He encouraged his artistic peers to display their paintings, sculpture and lithographs in his restaurant along side his own paintings and the forum “Art Talk/Shop” was born.  Here he gained his initial recognition as an artist and established excellent liaisons with Madison Avenue Gallery owners which some of his works show cased in the nineteen seventies.

The following is a statement from George Colovic concerning his work and the philosophy as it concerns his painting:

I doubt that I would be capable of indicating all different opinions regarding my creativity. But some of them for sure refer to: different influences, interactions, emotional, social, political and psychological particularities that are causing the evolution of our civilization, its beauty and its anomalies.

Dear friends, could we find the solution for this desperate fact of the life we are going through? I am trying to answer that question through my painting, without using the words. The symbolism in my work tells the stories of my heartfelt emotions for the paintings I create.

I am not politician, but a surrealist painter, and it is impossible as a painter not to be aware of social movements. Therefore, some of my paintings could be considered as a “social satiricon” that hallmarks significant or crucial moments and interferences through the history of human society, seen by the eye of the artist. I am interested very much in social movements and am trying to establish historical liaisons in my satirical artistic expression. My Mona Lisa is entitled “The Truth” because I am trying to explain my artistic vision of the true story on the evolution and meaning of the painting.

Artist Statement:

The early artworks from the very start of my painting had the appearance of a “Tall Hills”, a challenge big enough to stop me before I even began. Again, the spirit of French Art either through books that I had the chance to read or through direct communications with the artists helped me to open that iron door in the front of the hill and to cross over my bridge. Whatever happened after that convinced me that there is no “Hill” in front of me only laws of nature, social movements and the faith of the human race that perpetually exists in different forms at different times. The history of life and great Art coupled with social structures goes in cycles that move and will exist as infinite as mankind.
