Exhibition Overview

“This exhibition, presenting a portion of Slobodan Slovinić’s rich opus, aims to once again highlight one of the most eminent figures of the Montenegrin cultural scene, whose artwork has fully realized and affirmed its artistic value,” wrote Čelebić in the exhibition catalog.

Čelebić also emphasizes that Slovinić demonstrates powerful emotional painting and authentic artistic expression, narrating his intimate experiences through various symbols of artistic expression.
