Violence, repression, manipulation; the uncomfortable realities of contemporary life are exposed in Mihael Milunovic’s enticing creations.

Born in Belgrade in 1967, Milunovic grew up in an artistic family environment. Both his father and grandfather were well-known Serbian artists and his mother is a renowned Croatian sculptor. Milunovic’s early experiences playing in his parents’ studio, his interest in geography and machinery, or paintings by the likes of Titian, Velazquez or De Chirico would all have a lasting effect on his work.

Milunovic attended the Belgrade Faculty of Fine Arts, then the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, where he studied in class of professor Vladimir Velickovic and visiting professors Marina Abramovic and Tony Brown, among others. 

Remarked, he became the Laureate of the Foundation RENOIR (worked and lived in Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s atelier). 

He received a prestigious prize for painting from the French Academy of Arts and sciences in November 2018 funds from Foundations Roux and Tronchet during a solemn session.

His work encompasses a wide range of disciplines, from painting, drawing and photography through to large-scale sculptures and installations.

By decontextualising everyday objects, symbols or situations, Milunovic provokes unease in the observer, a blend of alienation and curiosity.

Since the mid 90’s, Milunovic has participated in numerous exhibitions across Europe and held solo shows in France, China, UK, Austria, Italy, Morocco and Serbia.

His works are featured in prestigious museum collections including MUMOK, Vienna; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade; Palazzo Forti, Verona; and Musée d’Art et d’Industrie, Saint-Étienne, France. 

He lives and works in Paris.
