Ljuba's art and it's aesthetics thrill the spirits and provoke contradictory judgments and comments. His paintings are full of his real life. He is a figurative painter, a realist, a surrealist and contemporary, modern artist. From the point of view of authenticity, vitality, and motives of artistic reality Ljuba's art turns to it's past so that it can better enjoy it's present.

Ljuba was born 1955 at Serbia and 1983 migrated to Australia, Melbourne. where he has lived ever since.

Ljuba has been exhibiting for nearly 35 years. His first exhibition was

Ljuba's view is that art does not have prophetic ambitions, rather it is satisfied with reality emerging from images of certain periods through which the artist has lived.
