Prints of 100 Views of Ukiyo-e

Print based on my paintings from the series 100 Views of Ukiyo-e.

My association with BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.

“My relationship with the BlackBOX officially started in 2013, with my solo exhibition there. Before that I was a regular visitor to exhibitions held there. I have been a friend with SrećkoHrkač since our student time at Fine Arts Academy Sarajevo, and I met with JulijanKomšić later on and we became very good friends. After my exhibition in 2013 my way of thinking in creative (or planning) process always includes BlackBOX as a possible partner. Apart from the basic relationship of the artist and the print shop, where print shop produces prints of the artist, BlackBOX also serves as a safe haven where I can present my work or realize other projects.”
