In his ongoing colourful series Cities, Serbian artist Vuk Vučković creates highly detailed panoramas of some of the world's most famous metropoles. Using oil on canvas, the bright and often cartoon-like paintings chronicle everything he observes, whether it's New York, Chicago or Serbia's Novi Sad.
"Through my paintings, I record the city in the present. I strive to preserve the beauty of the city by reminding people of it," Vuk explains. "I love to highlight the good things that make a city, to show it in a positive light to both those who live there, as well as tourists. People identify with cities, which evoke strong emotions. Cities are sometimes beyond borders and countries.
"My intention is to encourage the observer to expand his or her knowledge of the culture and history of the cities that I paint, with the idea that when we learn, then we will understand, and when we understand, then we will preserve and nurture."
Vuk was born in 1986 in Pančevo, Serbia. He graduated in 2010 from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, where he started his doctoral studies in painting the same year. Since 2015, he has been the co-founder of the art studio Wolf Art. Discover more of Vuk's bright and beautiful work at www.vukvuckovic.com.
