Serbian sculptor Branko Miskovic conveys emotional stories through his artwork. His pieces reflect the traps that people fall into in pursuit of love and money. They speak to the breaking apart of one’s illusions when the snares of self-deception reveal themselves. As a result of these themes, many of Miskovic’s pieces have a sense of fragility and temporality, even when they are made of sturdy materials like wood and metal. Miskovic draws heavily from his own life and experiences when creating these works. He does not sketch plans or build maquettes beforehand, but rather forms each sculpture on the fly as his instinct in the moment dictates. As intensely personal as each piece is, the elegance and simplicity with which Miskovic executes his work gives his sculptures a sense of universality that speaks directly to his viewers.
A graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Miskovic has participated in many group exhibitions in Serbia and abroad. He is greatly influenced by classical Greece and the Italian Renaissance.
