A sculptor born and raised in Croatia during the greatest turmoil in Balkans poured his state of mind into his sculptures as an only escape from a terrifying reality and consequences of war. 
Weaved out of primordial materials, such as wood and clay, in a combination with modern materials such as metal and plastic, sculptures are expressing raw and basic impulses, fears and desires. Created in a mixed media technique, they remind the audience, and the author himself, that life consists of many events and feelings that create the wholeness and the experience of an individual at the same time. The modern materials describe a modern man who is at his core, unfortunately, remained unchanged since the beginnings. The open mouth in almost every piece talk about hunger, though not the physical one, rather an anguish that consumes and destroy his and everyone else's Even though they seem pessimistic, they are actually very optimistic as they represent soul-healing process for this artist.

The greatest influence on me as a person and later as an artist had the war that raged in my country during the 90's.
Most of my childhood my imagination was saving me from the horrors of every day life. I could say that for me the art is a sort of therapy that keeps me on the surface preventing me from falling into the depths of madness. War is a state that drags out the worst in people, and forms grotesque souls that appear in my sculptures.
Me second therapy is inseparable from my first and is called metal music. I've been a leading vocal in a death metal bend for many years now, and the lyrics that I write for the band are those same sculptures, just transferred in words. Maybe not so touchable, but with the same powerful message.
Rage, rebellion, sorrow and fear are the feelings that should be not kept inside, and I find myself to be one of those lucky ones who have found the way to deal with them in a creative way not expecting other people to understand

♥ Hi there kitten ~* 
♥ I used to be known as DemoiselleCourtoisie, but I no longer affiliate to the name and decided to change it to something more ''me''.
♥ I am writting to you because you are watching me, here, on DeviantART and I was thinking that maybe you'd be interested in liking my Facebook page as well !
♥ On there I am way more active and I plan to post some cosplay progress, make up tutorials and just everything I do that might interest you ~
♥ Thank you very much all in all, even if you decide that you don't want to follow me there too.
