Through this exhibition, Nikola Žigon embarks on a journey through his own memory map. A journey that has its duration, shortcuts and stray paths, as well as its final destination. What is required for this is that the right preconditions are created, and it would appear that such a moment has arrived in the creative opus of Nikola Žigon. The works seem to have been developed and materialised parallel with the images being lit up in the artist’s spirit. They exude uncommon ease and freshness, which the artist achieves when he does not let skill take precedence over curiosity, and are firmly founded on the artist’s clearly defined attitude, visible in each phase of the investigative process, that is, cycle.
Born in Ljubljana in 1958, Nikola Žigon studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. During the beginning of his professional carreer he dealt with drawing, and also with video art and art installations. After living in Paris in the year 2000, he entirely dedicated himself to painting. With exhibitions in Paris and Belgrade between 2000 and 2001 Žigon proved himself to have found his artistic style of expression.
In the following years Nikola Žigon has been exhibiting in Munich, Belgrade, Milan, Dubai and numerous other places in Europe. His artworks can be found in major private collection as well as in the collection of museums throughout europe.
Nikola Žigon lives and works in Belgrade.
