Croatian born artist Dragomir Mišina uses the process of painting to document physical and psychological presence, investigating the communicative function of color and form as a reaction. The artist says of his process, “the starting point of each painting is based on some form of narrative, which inevitably informs the course of painting. However, in the process of painting, it is not a question of making ever more references to the narrative, but a deliberate attempt to escape from it. Therefore the paintings may be observed for what they are rather than what they should mean.”
Recently Dragomir’s work was extensively published in The New Collectors Book, fifth edition, 2016. In early 2014 he was one of 10 finalists selected for the Saatchi Art exhibition in London “In Glorious Color” from 6,440 entries. He frequently exhibits at The Royal West of England Academy where he won the Evolver Wessex Artist Award in 2013 at Annual Open Exhibition. As well as having paintings in private collections in UK, Europe, USA and Hong Kong, Dragomir’s work is part of Bath Spa University permanent collection.
