 About Artist

Nikola Ukics artistic approach lies in the combination of sculpture, photography and performance. Ukic pours his preferred working material polyurethane on foils, that has been designed with motifs. The negative of this flexible, incalculable, expanding material polyurethane combines the hardening process with the applied foil. It ist both a sculptural form and a image carrier.
