Life, Stories & Paintings on Canvas

“I have an inborn need to paint, to create. This is my life. My thoughts, my sufferings, my life. I am an ascetic artist.”

Goran Gatarić Signature small


Oil Paintings

Goran’s unique storytelling paintings are the result of his artistic conceptuality. Using the oil on canvas technique, he creates peculiar and unrepeatable works. Each piece is a tale developing its own plot. He is depicting and describing the story and its characters using the variety of shades and colors, and divers moves of a brush.

„Art is when you collect plenty of energy and eject it away in a moment. That energy is manifested through my artwork.“
