About me and my art
O meni i mojoj umjetnosti

.
[EN]
My name is Boris Pecigoš. I was born in 1974 in Zagreb, Croatia. I have lived and worked in Rijeka since 2014, on the border where the sea and the mountains meet. They are my inexhaustible connection to the Source. In the artistic creativity, as well as in other things I do, I am inspirited and inspired by powerful and beautiful nature, gentle and meditative music, profound and emotional poetry, mystical and zen spirituality.
I graduated in painting at Arthouse – College of Visual Arts [→] in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I usually paint in acrylic medium with abstracted or completely abstract artistic expression of strong colors and accentuated relief. Themes of my works are forest and trees, a mandala form and mysticism of protosymbols (spiral, circle, sun, etc.), Glagolitic and Arabic script, music and poetry, inner conflicts and self-knowledge, transience, death, and other [view my complete art portfolio].
Land art and rock art (rock paintings) provide me an excellent opportunity to connect my art, love of nature and my understanding of spirituality [see land art gallery]. The subject of my master’s thesis was the design and realization of an extensive project of Land art trail on Mt. Učka, in collaboration with the Učka Nature Park.
Poetry that I write has been published in printed and electronic form in several domestic and foreign collections, and is characterized by contemplative, love and spiritual themes.
I am a member of HDLU Zagreb (Hrvatsko društvo likovnih umjetnika Zagreb / Croatian Association of Visual Artists Zagreb) [→].
I am the founder and head of Atelier Hayat [→].

Moje ime je Boris Pecigoš. Rođen sam 1974. u Zagrebu, a od početka 2014. živim i stvaram u Rijeci, na granici gdje se susreću more i planine koji su moja nepresušna veza s Izvorom. U umjetničkom stvaralaštvu, kao i u ostalim stvarima koje radim, nadahnjuju me i inspiriraju moćna i prekrasna priroda, nježna i meditativna glazba, duboka i emotivna poezija te mistična i zen duhovnost.
Slikarstvo sam diplomirao na ljubljanskom Arthouse – College of Visual Arts [→]. Najčešće slikam u mediju akrila s apstrahiranim ili potpuno apstraktnim likovnim izrazom jakog kolorita i izražene reljefnosti. Motivi mojih slika su šuma i drveće, forma mandale i mistika prasimbola (spirale, kruga, sunca, itd.), glagoljičko i arapsko pismo, glazba i poezija, unutrašnji konflikti i samospoznaja, prolaznost, smrt, i drugo [pogledaj moj kompletan art portfolio].
Land art i rock art (stijenske slikarije) mi pružaju izvanrednu mogućnost da spojim svoju umjetnost, ljubav prema prirodi i moje poimanje duhovnog [pogledaj land art galeriju]. Tema mog magistarskog rada bila je osmišljavanje i realizacija opsežnog projekta Land art staze na Učki, u suradnji s Parkom prirode Učka.
Poezija koju pišem objavljivana je u tiskanom i elektroničkom obliku u nekoliko domaćih i inozemnih zbirki, a karakteriziraju je kontemplativne, ljubavne i duhovne teme [preuzmi Zbirku poezije “Putovanje”].
Član sam HDLU Zagreb (Hrvatskog društva likovnih umjetnika Zagreb) [→].
Osnivač sam i voditelj udruge Atelier Hayat [→].

Citations by famous artists as my art statement
to describe my approach to artistic creation

.

“The invention of photography had released painting from the need to copy nature leaving the artist free to present emotion as directly as possible and by the simplest means”
Henri Matisse
(1869–1954)

“Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.”
“Colours on the painter’s palette evoke a double effect: a purely physical effect on the eye which is charmed by the beauty of colours, similar to the joyful impression when we eat a delicacy. This effect can be much deeper, however, causing a vibration of the soul or an “inner resonance” – a spiritual effect in which the colour touches the soul itself.”
“The true work of art is born from the ‘artist’: a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being.”
Wassily Kandinsky
(1866–1944)

“The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating.”
“I don’t work from drawings. I don’t make sketches and drawings and colour sketches into a final painting.”
“Today painters do not have to go to a subject matter outside of themselves. Most modern painters work from a different source. They work from within.”
Jackson Pollock
(1912–1956)

“I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.” 
Jean-Michel Basquiat
(1960-1988)
