Bogdan Pavlovic was born in 1969 in Belgrade. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts (ENSBA) in Paris in 1997. He works in Paris at La Ruche, historical artistic site.
Pavlovic is a multidisciplinary artist who, in addition to drawing, painting and collage, is also involved in photography, video animation and ambient installation. The experimental aspect in Pavlovic’s work is omnipresent. Through his creations, in an expressive and simple manner, Bogdan Pavlovic makes the connection between the universal and the personal, the documentary and the imaginary.
His works make part part of the following public collections: Lefranc & Bourgeois, Watches Rado France, Zepter Museum, Opel France, Aéroports de Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, Museum of the City of Belgrade.
He produced the monumental drawing “Between”, in collaboration with Studio Van Rijn for the Hyatt Regency Etoile hotel in Paris, in 2018. In 2003, he and his brother, Miško Pavlovic, worked on an exhibition project dedicated to the 100th anniversary of world aviation in the Yugoslav Aviation Museum. He designed the poster for Emir Kusturica’s film “Super 8 Stories” in 2001. In 1994, he painted the model of the OPEL “Tigra” for Salon d’Automobiles in Paris.
