BIO
Aleksandar Macasev is a Serbian artist and designer, who works in a very broad range of visual and interactive arts (painting, graphic design/arts, web art, advertising). He is best known for using the Internet as a platform for art, as well as for using mass media vocabulary in his work. His artwork often blurs the boundaries between visual culture disciplines. He began his art career as a painter, and later switched to new media, web and graphic arts, while working as a designer for several major advertising agencies in Serbia. He has written extensively on art and design for several Serbian art magazines (such as "Remont"). He has taught Interactive Design and History of Visual Communications at the BK Academy of Arts in Belgrade, and given guest lectures in the United States. He received a degree in architecture from the University of Belgrade in 1998. He is a member of AIGA, Art Directors Club of Serbia and the Serbian Association of Applied Artists.

After the Amateur: Notes


Amateurism born out of "I can't be bothered" pure joy of the first take. There's no time (and no need, for that matter) for over-polished and super-produced art. Just do it!

Margins is an ongoing art project in the form of a visual diary. It is a collection of ephemeral graffiti, improvised installations and readymades in my own home. Actually, in various homes I used to live in or still live in. Due to occasional agoraphobic fears of the outside world, I find myself safe, albeit trapped, within the margins of my own home where I make some improvised artwork just for myself. These are the home-made photo documents.
