About Biscevic

Samir Biscevic born in 1963, in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Hercegovina. He spent four years at the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts where he majored in painting and worked under professors Nusret Pasic and Miroslav Percinlic. Live and work in Chicago, USA.

War Paintings

Life, destruction and the tension between them preoccupied Samir in his war paintings.
However, the spontaneous feelings aroused from the experiences of war steered him through a series of conscious and subconscious decisions in response to both violent external and turbulent internal stimuli. His expressionist style is deeply rooted in the tragedy brought on by the war in Bosnia. The collapse of existing values filled Samir with the desire to express visually the existential conflict of man. His art enables us to understand the conflict and bravery of one man’s through acts of love, tragedy and survival.


New Work

Samir is using a multitude of art combination of photo techniques, digital manipulation, print, and collage and acrylic paint on canvas. His connotations are multiplied and enriched by means of his technical skill. Samir typically applies paint rapidly in an effort to show feeling and emotion.

New paintings are mix of photos, images and other subjects to creating a totally new piece of art. When final image is printed It’s painted over with many layers of paint until new work is slowly emerging. He paints gesturally, applying paint with brushes, and sometimes dripping it onto the canvas. He uses brushes with blissful energy building up multilayered and multycromatic bold mixed medium color paintings.

Academy

Academy of Arts – Sarajevo was some of the best years of my life and amazing experience. It made a huge impact on my life and unique and wonderful experience in itself. Professors and assistants were an great source of inspiration and education. Just being surrounded by other people who are like you and share your passions was absolutely amazing.
I still keep in touch with friends I made at Academy, even though we don’t live in the same city.

Samir Biscevic was born on April 25, 1963, in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Hercegovina. He spent four years at the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Arts where he majored in painting and worked under professors Nusret Pasic and Miroslav Percinlic.
Life, destruction and the tension between them preoccupied Samir in his recent paintings.

 However, the spontaneous feelings aroused from the experiences of war steered him through a series of conscious and subconscious decisions in response to both violent external and turbulent internal stimuli. His expressionist style is deeply rooted in the tragedy brought on by the war in Bosnia. The collapse of existing values filled Samir with the desire to express visually the existential conflict of man. His art enables us to understand the conflict and bravery of one man’s through acts of love, tragedy and survival.

His connotations are multiplied and enriched by means of his technical skill. Samir typically applies paint rapidly in an effort to show feeling and emotion. He paints gesturally, applying paint with brushes, and sometimes dripping or even throwing it onto the canvas. He uses brushes with blissful energy building up multilayered and multicromatic bold mixed medium color paintings. While his work may look like an accident, it actually demonstrates the spontaneous creative release of his subconscious. His finished paintings are a piece of life with very personal and subjective meanings.

Centered in his Chicago studio, Samir maintains an energetic arrangement of color spontaneously on the canvas. He demonstrates dynamic subjectivity and creativity in his work. His feelings, shaped by war, are expressed positively against the backdrop of destruction, brutality and darkness. Samir’s expressionistic and emotional paintings are a testament to the destruction and terror that war can bring.
