Dejan Dukic (*1975 in Vienna) paints exclusively with color and canvas, not figuratively, but in the truest sense of the word abstract. Dukic’s process is extraordinary in that he massages the color through the woven or perforated structure of canvas or other support materials.
The artist seeks to establish a direct contact with the oil paint, as he gets rid of familiar painterly devices such as color palette, easel and brush. Often, as the colors are gradually pressed through the fabric, the paintings themselves become the color palette.
Dejan Dukic graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where he studied under Daniel Richter.
