Milan Milojevic orchestrates and embodies a collision of worlds, through his art practice and his heritage. Until recently, Milojevic was an invaluable artist for the Tasmanian School of Art, acting as Head of the Printmaking Studio, and a Chief Investigator and member of the Digital Art Research Facility. His ability to create hybrids of the traditional and the digital in printmaking is highly celebrated. Most commonly, Milojevic will forge whimsical worlds that intertwine nineteenth century European wood block designs with digital reconstruction.
Phantastic forests–filled to the brim with unconventional fauna, flora and mythical creatures–that offer an escape from everyday normalcy. Despite first impressions, these scenes are based on early biological records. Milojevic has created an alternate natural history that laces together his Yugoslavian heritage and contemporary artistic abilities.
Milojevic has exhibited and been collected extensively, both nationally and internationally. He work is held in collections such as Artbank, the National Gallery of Australia, Queensland Art Gallery, State Library of Queensland, State Library of NSW, Art Gallery of South Australia, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, the Montrose Academy and the Aberdeen Infirmary, Scotland, and the Bureau of Artistic Exhibitions, Poland.
