Description Parallel universe or alternative reality is a self-contained separate reality coexisting with our own. Fantasy has long borrowed the idea of 'another world' from myth, legend and religion. Heaven, Hell, Olympus, Valhalla are all 'alternative universes' different from the familiar material realm. Modern fantasy often presents the concept as a series of planes of existence where the laws of nature differ, allowing magical phenomena of some sort on some planes. This concept was also found in ancient Hindu mythology, in texts such as the Puranas, which expressed an infinite number of universes, each with its own gods....And this is my work with a question: 'Are you sure the stars wait, behind the parallel universe gate?'
Dragoljub Paunovic, Belgrade Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement He is a programmer by profession and he worked for more then two decades in the software development projects in leading positions.
Digital art has fascinated him for years as a new way for capturing mysterious corners of the human imagination. Today, we can confidently say that the digital art offers limitless horizons for everything, from figurative compositions to landscapes and abstractions.
His favorite painters are Gustave Courbet, Anders Zorn, Amadeo Modigliani, Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro and Marc Shagal.
His featured works are dedicated to his dual passions for female beauty and abstractions.
His credo: “I am fifty years old and I have always lived in freedom; let me end my life free; when I am dead let this be said of me: He belonged to no school, to no church, to no institution, to no academy, least of all to any régime except the régime of liberty.” - Gustave Courbet.
It is a great honor for him to share his passion with you, so he hopes you will enjoy your visit.
