Big Bang

VLADIMIR CVETKOVIĆ,  rodjen u Puli 1966. godine.

Fascinantan svijet mozaika upoznao sam za vrijeme višegodišnjeg boravka na Siciliji i u Veneciji. Prve korake sam učio u jednoj radionici u Palermu, gdje sam uočio brojne mogućnosti kombiniranja različitih materijala i njihovo zajedničko djelovanje na pojedinom djelu.

Mozaike izrađujem povremeno od 1996. godine, a intenzivno od 2011. godine. Mozaike najviše izradjujem od različitih vrsta stakla, (Tiffany spectrum staklo, ručno bojano i murano staklo), kao i od terakota ploćica, umjetnog i prirodnog kamena, pozlaćenih ploćica, ali koristim i razno poludrago kamenje i kristale.

Mozaicima pokušavam udahnuti i konkretnu uporabnu vrijednost, pa ih često koristim kod izrade ogledala koja tako mogu postati i likovno djelo u sklopu gotovo svakog interijera, klasičnog ili modernog.

Mozaike često nazivaju „vječitim slikama“ ili „vječitom umjetnošću“, pa je vjerojatno i mene privukla činjenica kreiranja djela ove atraktivne tehnike koja je i tehnički i u svojoj aktualnosti toliko dugovječna.

Član sam Hrvatskog likovnog društva. Prvu samostalnu izložbu imao sam  u ožujku 2013.g. u galeriji Bernardo Bernardi POU Zagreb, te nekoliko skupnih izložbi u sklopu Hrvatskog likovnog društva.

Mozaik je već stotinama godina cijenjen kao umjetnička tehnika i iznova nalazi svoje vjerne obožavatelje. Razvoj mozaika kao umjetničke tehnike, javlja se još u antičko doba. Zbog svojih iznimnih umjetničkih i estetskih vrijednosti, mozaik je zastupljen i u suvremenoj arhitekturi te se uspješno integrira u moderne interijere.
Antique Art Studio se specijalizirao za ručnu izradu predmeta s aplikacijom mozaik tehnike te nudi mogućnost da se svaki komad unikatno personificira kroz boje, formu, materijal i uzorak, ne bi li svatko mogao dobiti jedinstveni predmet za koji će osjećati da je rađen baš za njega i njegove potrebe.

VLADIMIR CVETKOVIĆ was born in Pula, in 1966; he lived for years in Lovran, a small town at the Adria coast.

Now he lives and worksin Zagreb, Croatia.  Vladimir Cvetković became fascinated by the world of mosaics

during his stay in Sicily and Venice, where he has learned thebasics of mosaic workmanship,  how to combine different

materials and learned to perceive their mutual performance on aparticular piece of art.

Since 1996. he has been making mosaics occasionaly, however, since 2011. mosaics became his every day work, rather passion.

His mosaics are made from glass (hand painted, Tiffany spectrum glass,murano glass), different types of stone, terracotta, artifical stone, some mosaics have gilded parts, crystals and  semi-precious gems.

Vladimir’s mosaic mirrors, club tables and pictures arepieces of unique artistic expression, which can be incorporated

into any inviroment, classic or modern. Mosaics are often called „eternal pictures“ or „eternal art“, attractive, technicaly very demanding, offer their owner a specialpiece of art appreciated by true experts.

Vladimir Cvetković is a member of the Croatian society of fine arts.

ABOUT  ANTIQUE ART STUDIO

Antique art studio is a personal project established on the experience of artistic creativity of the 
author, Vladimir Cvetković, an artist born in Pula in 1966.
During his stay in Italy (Venice and Sicily), he learned the basics of mosaic workmanship. Fascinated 
by the beauty, refinement and expressive opportunities of mosaic, he decided to initiate the 
production of various items with the application of this technique. Many beautiful items such 
as mirrors, pictures, pieces of furniture with parts of glass mosaic, terracotta, semiprecious stones, 
gold-plated parts and many other materials were created.
The author's aim is to bring closer this archaic technique to the requirements of not only the 
traditional and classical environments, but also to modern interiors and exteriors, especially due to 
the fact that these unique artistic items have also a usable value. Based on the special requirements 
of individual clients, Antique Art Studio offers the possibility that each artistic item is 
personified through colors, shapes and materials, resulting with a unique piece made exclusively 
for the client's needs.

The development of mosaic, as an art technique, has appeared in antique era.In ancient Greece and Rome, mosaic has been used for  the decoration of interiors, but it reached full bloom in the era of Byzantine.
