Artist profile

Aleksandar Basic

I was born in Croatia, 1975. In 2002 I have completed BA Illustration at University of Derby and in 2007 MA Media Arts at Manchester Metropolitan University. I am working with adults and children as a lecturer and a teacher. Also, I have had my illustrations published in a number of high profile publications including The Independent. My main skills are painting and drawing. “I am very much interested in existentialism, impressionism, cubism and most of the other isms. When creating artwork, I am not thinking about style but rather how and what I want to achieve. I am very much interested in “how things work” and I investigate this in some aspects of form, shape and colour.” “I find that there is more in essence of the things than in their appearance. My motifs are people, things and places that have left impressions on me.”
