Vladislav Dacesin, Banja Luka Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement My name is Vladislav Dacesin, I am a 57 year old artist born in Banja Luka(Bosnia and Herzegovina) I started painting in 1979 and so far I had displayed my artwork in over 80 exhibitions. The style that I paint is hyper-realism and the motifs are mostly of surreal thematichs. metaphysics of time and space. The famous American painter Paul Collins(a winner of different national and international awards in painting and design) reviewed my work in 1998. and highly praised it. I am also the oldest galerist in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and one of the oldest in Ex Yugoslavia. Since 2001 I have been managing my own school of hyper-realism.
