My art has a soul. ♥
"In my work I have drawn inspiration from the beauty expressed in simple things in unexpected ways. I create from my own life experiences."
Anita Kovacevic is a Bosnian/Canadian fine art photographer, artist and jewelry designer.
Born in 1975 in Slovenia, she currently lives with her family in the small village in north of Bosnia.
"I'm an internationally published and exhibited award-winning fine art photographer and visual artist. My art reflects me; my thoughts, my emotions, my life experience; and is essentially centered and inspired by the simplest, uncomplicated and quieter side of life, as well as the beauty of natural world. I try to stimulate the viewers imagination by touching them through sometimes dramatic and poetic creations. I believe that all creative work is essentially autobiographical; everything that we are, feel, our heritage, curiosity, imagination, longing, our thoughts and emotions merge into our artwork."
Anita is a contributing artist of project 'Trees of the planet - Planet of trees' and is currently enrolled in the Professional Photography Course in the New York Institute of Photography. She is a supporter of 'Art in all of us'.
"Being deeply influenced by the Japanese philosophy that embraces simplicity, and the Chinese philosophy that emphasizes the importance of the family, I strive not to forget who I am and where I come from."
My whole concept and approach to art is simple just as my philosophy of mind is. I'm inspired by the simplest and quieter side of life, and enjoy peaceful natural escapes. My images reflect my inner vision and my floating between memories and dreams. They are simplified into a quiet and poetic understanding of life and, most of the time, displacement of species, including humans. In some of my photographs there is a certain air of sadness. My images are poetic, ethereal and sometimes mystic. I photograph from inside out.
I rely on natural or minimal lighting to produce a candid style of photography. I try to lead the viewer through my visual creations on a journey of self-discovery. I'm striving for beauty at it's simplest.
My photography is a visual poetry with a soft breath of nostalgia.
From Bosnia with Love! ♥
