Having lived the horrors of war in Bosnia from 1990-1995, a part of Goran’s work rests on memories and feelings from what he experienced back then; remembering too well the massacres that happened during this war. The images of his compatriots being killed at the marketplace have left a heavy imprint on his memories.
Paintings modify perceptions. The duality of the connection between life and death is often expressed in his work. For Goran, the way to live with it is to express his feelings and memories through art. The quest for beauty based on a compliance with established rules, techniques and themes could not translate the ardor of his creations. His work often features both living and ghostly figures with a dash of abstract that the artist works in by applying different techniques.
