Aleksandar Denić

Aleksandar Denic is a painter. His paintings combine surrealist juxtapositions of well-known (and not so well-known) historical figures and various personalities from contemporary popular culture.

He likes to sing and is extremely fond of traditional and neo-folk coming from Serbia and the wider Balkan region. He’s interested in the relationship between folk music and the dominant liberal ideology in Serbia, whose racist stance against folk in general, and turbo-folk in particular, ushered in a kind of dictatorship of taste.
