Nikola Zigon:( Serbia) "Moonlight Mile" The artist exhibits 15 of his finest paintings at Art Couture in Dubai.
Nikola Zigon, was born on July 13, 1958 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In 1991, he graduated from the University of Arts in Belgrade - The Faculty of Fine Arts - Painting Department -Class of Professor Moma Antonovic.
Between 1992 & 2009, he had over 30 solo exhibitions, with the most significant ones in Munich, Paris, Milan, & Belgrade. Zigon has his own individual style and preference of colours and medium and one often sees a dominance of white and lighter shades in his artworks. He works in pencil, graphite, acrylics and adds mixed media and texture to many of his works especially his column series that has bits of fine detailing. Bold blocks or hints of stronger colours are applied on huge canvasses and allowed in places to drip and form their own patterns that add to the complete art work. Visible too in many of his works are scribbles and alphabets and bits of writing that add further
interest to his works.
He names his artworks giving the viewer a direction but then leaves the rest of the narrative to the viewer. Different people interpret his artworks in different ways.
He has been an exclusive member of PROM Gallery in Munich, Germany, since 2002. He is also a member of ULUS (Association of Fine Artists of Serbia) in Belgrade, where he lives and works.
