Vojo Stanić : sailing on dreams by Vojislav Stanić( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
"For over half a century the Montenegrin painter Vojislav Stanic has been living and working in the small town of Herceg Novi, observing the lives of its inhabitants from the window of his attic studio with a sharp eye and an impish intelligence. Here, so Stanic claims, is a microcosm of the world. One can see universal emotions and traits - love, lust, joy, fear, wonder, jealousy - played out in the parks and cafes of this bustling little port town on the Adriatic." "But if many of Stanic's insights come from keen observation of his neighbors, it is his idiosyncratic outlook and his eye for absurdities and gentle ironies which make his work so compelling. And if he draws on the work of such artists as Bosch, Magritte and de Chirico, it is always with a lightness of touch which leaves one in no doubt that Stanic is a major artistic talent in his own right. This book, including essays which trace his artistic development and explore his uniquely vital imagination, promises to bring his work to the international audience it deserves."--BOOK JACKET
