A unique exhibition was opened by Jasenko Djordjevic in Tuzla. He is an artist who creates miniature sculptures at the top of a graphite pencil. Motifs of the city of Tuzla prevail among the exhibited works, and Djordjevic created them during the last couple of months.
“Besides a graphite pencil, I also use a broad scope of scalpels and needles in my work. I usually do some final details under the magnifying glass, and I use my naked eye for the rest. The diameter of sculptures is between two and four millimetres and details on them are very small,” noted Djordjevic.
He needs a lot of patience, calmness and great eyesight for his works, which attracted a lot of attention in Tuzla. The majority of visitors are using magnifying glass to take a look at little sculptures, and there are also photographs on which the works are enlarged.
“We exhibited the Old portal of Medresa, the City Water Fountain, Tvrtko I Kotromanic, the old Catholic church, a mother with child, the Old bridge in Mostar, and it was a great challenge for me to create. Here is also one of the first works that I have created, and it is the work “Creation of Adam”. It has been exposed in Norway for a long period of time,” noted Djordjevic.
The gallery in which the works are exhibited was opened within the Association for Promotion of Miniature “Toldart”, and although their focus is on miniatures, the main aim of that association is to promote different kinds of art.
Only a few people in the world is dealing with this type of art, and this exhibition, which is Djordjevic’s sixth solo exhibition, will be opened until March 23.
