Abstract Expressionists We Love: Zeljko Jancic Zec

on May 29, 2023

Zeljko Jancic Zec
Vienna, Austria

I'm captivated by the multiplicity of Zeljko Jancic Zec’s creative journey. Born in Rijeka, Austria, in 1969, Zeljko uses art to explore the unfolding of daily life, the human condition, and existence through various mediums.

By Zeljko Jancic Zec.

Trained at Amsterdam’s voor de Kunsten school, Zeljko wears many hats—he’s a painter, multimedia artist, theater teacher, choreographer, and director. His international presence is marked by performances, exhibitions, and awards for films like "Waterish" and "The Second Man."

Over four decades, his art, showcased in over forty exhibitions, unveils a unique reality stemming from his artistic autonomy. Zeljko’s paintings are brim with graphic elements, clean expression, and vibrant colors. His compositions, free from tradition and trends, nonetheless invoke the great Basquiat, which I love, and they reflect a fearless announcement of his creative work to the world of fine art.
