With the help of Epson in RTS Gallery in Belgrade an exhibition dedicated to the life of the famous painter was presented
Retrospective exhibition “Journey without End” dedicated to a recently deceased painter Damjan Đakovo opened on Thursday at the RTS Gallery in Belgrade. The exhibition is a review of the work of the artist who was ranked among the best contemporary painters, and was realized with the help of Epson.
Djakov graduated from Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, but he made his world career in Italy, where he created for over 20 years. The Italians dedicated several monographs to him and he participated in more than a hundred collective European exhibitions and over forty of the most important European art fairs.
“He actually combined our icon-painting tradition with Western art experience, and that launched him in Italy, especially at the time when Andrej Tarkovski left the Soviet Union, and also tried to create a fusion of cultures. Damjan Đakov does that, but with his color, with his poetic poetics, he works in a psychedelic and fascinating way “, pointed out the political philosopher Dragoljub Kojčić, who led the opening program of the exhibition and who is the author of the exhibition catalog.
Damjan Djakov took his spiritual experiences based on Orthodox frescoes to Italy, where he spent more than two decades, but in a completely modern painting interpretation. He found his first inspirations either in mystical literature when he was very young or in Hermann Hesse, primarily in a short story entitled “Demian”. Since 2007, he has lived and worked in Belgrade. With his opus, he left a deep mark in European, Italian and Serbian art. He was a member of ULUS.
The exhibition was realized with the help of the company Epson, which provided projectors for a unique visual presentation and revival of the work of this artist.
The works of the prematurely deceased Damjan Đakov are in museum and private collections around the world. Several families donated the exhibited paintings, which will be in the Gallery of the Radio Television of Serbia until June 5.
