Vladislava Savic

Visual Artist

Vladislava Savic

Vladislava Savic was born in Yugoslavia, Communist Utopia that was established after World War II. When she was still a kid, her homeland was violently disassembled into a small pieces, six “independent” countries that are still struggling to establish their own identity.

Her hometown is located at 43°51′34″N 19°50′42″. A place where opposites meet and clash: East vs. West — Communism vs. Capitalism , conflicting political beliefs and social systems. 

The constant change and teetering stability of Vladislava’s physical surroundings shaped her as an artist, feeding her curiosity. Consequently, she has learned to create a “state” of her own. Her work is a living paradox, which is invaluable in today’s modern polarity.

She captures her universe on canvases, collages, and drawings — all of which contain buildings from her close, physical surroundings. Real space architecture is melted into her own perception of reality.

Today she lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland.
