About Change this

Ljubomir Denković is one of Serbia's most honored and awarded artists of the 20th century. He has organized over 150 exhibitions across Europe and created permanent public installations across the Balkans. He began his artistic academic career studying at the School of Applied Arts in Skopje, Macedonia, graduating from there in 1957, while going on to graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 1962. After finishing in Ljubljana, Denković moved to Novi Sad, Serbia where he taught for nearly 10 years at the School of Applied Arts. The approach which Denković took in creating sculpture was to explore the idea of forming abstract shapes using simple geometric themes from stone and concrete, while at the same time having his works mirror the organic world in their shape and textures.

During the 1960s and 1970s is Denković created the vast majority of the work he is known for today. In the late 1970s he designed two major spomenik complexes in Veles, Macedonia and Grmeč, Bosnia, with the shape and form of both exploring themes of death and rebirth via the symbol of the blossoming flower.
