Milica Zivadinovic, PhD

Born in Belgrade, Serbia in 1975. Since 1999, she has been living and working in Paris. 

Fine artist and art historian (PhD) based in Paris, Milica Zivadinovic expresses herself through painting, drawing, video, installations and performances. Her visual work is mainly inspired by cosmological phenomena, a plastic expression of possible relations between the idea and the symbol, an allegory of man’s metaphysical need to explore the world in which he lives and his dreams about depths of the Cosmos.


«The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mystery, the source of all true art and science.» Albert Einstein
