About Milenko Prvacki

Milenko Prvacki at Monda GalleryMilenko Prvacki is an abstract painter originating from ex-Yugoslavia, now living and working in Singapore.

His paintings are informed by his personal experiences, including the loss of the country he originates from but no longer exists. His works, created with soothing colors and transparencies, convey a distinct proprietary visual language built over the years. They also question the representative nature of painting by examining the relationship between abstraction and figuration. The figurative elements employed in his paintings are, at the same time, amorphous and highly ambiguous, thereby defying identification and categorization.

For more than 30 years, Mr Prvacki has participated in exhibitions around the world. His works are in the permanent collection of the Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, Serbia; Singapore Art Museum, Singapore; Museum of Contemporary Drawing, Nurnberg, Germany, and many others.

Born in Yugoslavia, Milenko graduated with a Master of Fine Arts (Painting) from the Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest, Romania. He was the Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at LaSalle College of the Arts for 17 years, and currently holds the position of Senior Fellow. In 2012, he received the prestigious Cultural Medallion Award for Visual Arts.
