Zlata Radovan ( ArtZlata )

My practice is restless, constant experimentation and exploration of different materials and techniques.

I started studying visual arts back in 1992 and have been painting, teaching and exhibiting ever since. I am a contemporary artist and I work from my studio ​in Adelaide, South Australia.

Given my origins and the turmoil that Balkan Peninsula endured in the last three decades, I have found my peace and serenity in my art and my writing. My art is defined by the ethno folklore of my childhood and the modern Australian influences. My practice is playful exploration of materials, where mixing and mistakes create beauty.

I find inspiration in children work, works of great old masters, memories, surroundings and travels. My line is inspired by Matisse and Klee, my colour is constant searching for something new and exciting.

Each piece is multi-layered, creating new dimension and expanding existing volume. Sometimes there are old paintings underneath which gives exciting texture to the new creation.
