Radenko Milak

Radenko Milak (b. 1980) studied from 1999 until 2003 at the Academy of Fine Art in Banja Luka and from 2003 until 2007 at the University of Fine Arts in Belgrade. The painterly work of Radenko Milak circles around questions of fixation and recall of the visual presentation in our personal memories and in the visual world of film and photo. He transform in his water colors and oil painting found footage from film, reportages and press into intimate visual scenarios. These small scene might evoke for the viewer the facts and stories behind the images, but can develop at the same time their own pictorial stories, if the historical background has been forgotten or is unknown.
