Enamel on wood · 70 x 60 cm

Nena Stojanovic (1973) grew up in a household surrounded by art, as the daughter of an engineer, painter and wood craftsman. Despite her growing passion for the arts, Stojanovic pursued her studies in dentistry. It was not until after her move from Serbia to Greece that the artist decided to focus her efforts on painting. For her abstract paintings Stojanovic uses wood, mdf and veneer as a base that she treats herself in order to create the proper foundation for her artworks. She works with glossy oil paints as well as contrasting materials such as crushed glass, shells and pebbles. Beyond her abstract work Stojanovic has mastered the art of portraiture, where she demonstrates her figurative skills and attention to the human form.
