Ivana Stanisavljevic

Ivana Stanisavljević Negić

She was born in 1977 in Belgrade,
where she still lives and works

She was born in 1977 in Belgrade, where she still lives and works. She’s been painting from 2000.

As a descendant of great sculptors, her grandfather Dragisa and father Milan Stanisavljevic, she developed and formed her artistic taste amongst their black, oak, monumental, triple-headed figures, birds, lovers, saints…

Despite the great influence of her grandfather and father, she managed to build her own expression with dynamic relation to techniques, using various materials, forms which she’s been constantly testing. Her dynamic, researching spirit, born sensibility and desire for an unique signature, will show a hole new list of artistic works which undoubtedly prove that Ivana although a young painter, a beginner, is, with no exception, original and unique.

Her works are shown from 2001 at group exhibitions in the country and abroad.

Before painting, she was training athletics for many years and she was a real capacity that was promising to only aim for the high places in the world of sports, multitalented contestants, who achieved as good results on hurdles as in running and long jump. Her performance was noticed on the numerous competitions. For many years she represented her country as a standard representative of Yugoslavia, and was also a team capiten in the athletics club Red Star, whose colours she had defended for about 13 years.

Accustomed to winning, she successfully continued to paint after having finished her high school.
