the visual artist Andjela Milenkovicha graduate of Altos de Chavón and the New York Film Academy, is part of the Dominican delegation that, as a visual collective and together with the French Embassy in Paris, will bring their best works to the Carrousel du Louvre.
“Being part of the exhibitions at the Carrousel du Louvre has been a big step in my career as an artist. It all started with my friend Augusto Batlle asking me if I like the Louvre. Thanks to Coco D’Art we have been able to be part of this very special group, with the goal of continuing to create more and expand ourselves”, said the artist Andjelik of Serbian origin, nationalized Dominican.
Andjela Milenkovich further studied the movement and concentration flow of visual elements in combination with interesting ways of telling a story.
“As a benefit of that, I have been part of several collective exhibitions, where one of them used my creative idea as a concept and theme, another was a competition where my work won first place,” he adds.
About two thousand plastic artists from all over the world and 600 galleries from art from some 100 countries, including the Dominican Republic, will meet in Paris, France, from 21 to 23 October, to celebrate the week of Art Contemporary with a great exhibition, which is expected to be attended by more than 30 thousand people.
The artist lived in Florence, Italy, where she studied the beauty of analog photography, alternative photography and printmaking at the Instituto Firenze Art Visive, refers a press release.
He comments on the creative process that when painting he uses different paints depending on how I want the concept colors to look, most of the time I combine different pigments, markers, fluorescent colors, pastels and charcoal.
“I like to use textures that add beauty and soul to the idea; like bits of nature and plants, corals, different fabrics or patterns on paper, materials that can’t be recycled, book pages, and sometimes even bits of photography that I have taken and printed or revealed.”
Milenkovich has a complete training that ranges from photography, film, animation, to music production and painting.
For her the art it is emotion and also awareness and commitment to the planet. For this reason, his most challenging work is called “More masks than waves in the sea” that invites us to think about caring for our nature.
“So many used, thrown away, forgotten masks during the pandemic. The piece is a beautiful giant sea made of masks that I collected for a year, which I disinfected, modified, painted and reused for the painting. Since one of my passions is also recycling , – what better way to express it with art?” he reflects.
He has been able to show his works in different exhibitions, including MADS Milano, Italy “Dream Room” 2020, Casa de Teatro Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic “Convergentes” 2021.
In the same way, she has received awards and recognitions, among which are those obtained in Altos de Chavón: Winner for Best Conceptual Idea for Exposition of 2016 and Best Graphic Poster in 2016.
From his training he studied Fine Arts in Altos de Chavón, Rep. Dom., making music videos at the New York Film Academy, New York, US, 3D Design at the School of Visual Arts, New York, US and more.
