Milan Milojevic

Printmaker

About

Milan Milojevic was born in Tasmania in 1964 of Yugoslav and German descent. He lives and works in Tasmania, where he is Senior Lecturer In Charge of the Printmaking Studio at the Tasmanian College of the Arts, University of Tasmania.

Using digital printmaking techniques, Milan creates stunning, multi-faceted works that reflect upon his cross-cultural heritage and explore issues associated with identity. His recent works bring together unlikely and impossible combinations of animal parts to create imaginary beasts; strange, hybrid creatures dwelling in fictional landscapes. The zoological displacements and dislocations of these images reflect geographical, historical and cultural displacement and their backgrounds have been developed by combining Australian and European engravings.

Milan has exhibited nationally and internationally over the past two decades and his work is held in major public and private collections in both Australia and Europe. He has received awards from major national funding bodies including DAAD, the Australia Council and the Australian Research Council and has undertaken several international residencies in Scotland including: Peacock Arts in Aberdeen and at the Glasgow School of Art.

He has exhibited nationally and internationally and has held regular solo exhibitions over the past three decades and contributed to group exhibitions throughout Australia, USA, UK, Europe and Asia.

He has received awards from major national funding bodies including DAAD, the Australia Council and the Australian Research Council. He has undertaken several international residencies in Scotland including: Peacock Arts in Aberdeen and at the Glasgow School of Art. In 1977-1978 Milan was Master Printer, Landfall Press, Chicago U.S.A. and in 1986/7 he was awarded a D.A.A.D Post-graduate Research Grant, Federal Republic of Germany, Hochshule fur Bildende Kunste Hamburg.

His work is held in major public and private collections in Australia, Asia, U.K, Europe and the U.S.A.
