Olivera Šipka


August 14th - 26th, 2017

On Monday, August 14th at 7 pm was opened the exhibition of Olivera Šipka, artist from Banja Luka.

Five years after her previous solo exhibition at Grafički Kolektiv Gallery, the author presents new prints which are part of her master project titled „Places between reality and imagination“.

Olivera Šipka finds inspiration in various shapes of nature and transforms them into reduced graphic signs. Using the fragments of material world of local source, she creates an authentic art language which speaks of universal subjects such as identity, origin, (pro)creation, life. Handmade paper used for printing, emphasizes the artist’s interest in material substance as existential and aesthetic phenomenon. Relief-like surface and vibrant colors accentuate the expressive features of each print.

Olivera Šipka (1986), got BA degree for graphic art in 2009 at Art Academy in Banja Luka, where she also got her Master’s degree in painting in 2016, and started Master studies of graphic art the same year. Since 2007 she had several solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Poland, USA, Canada. She won several prizes for accomplishments in graphic art.
