Pavlović Miodrag Dragomirac
He was born to his father Dragomir and mother Draga Pavlović in
Dobrača near Kragujevac on 13 February 1938. He showed his artistic
talent in his early childhood, in nineteen-fifties, which can be
found in several anecdotes. He devoted himself to painting as an
elderly man, after he retired in nineteen-nineties. He portrays his
homeland in personalized and sentimental viewing. The spirit of
village life is depicted in the rustic ambience of nature in his
native Dobrača, thus recalling nostalgic memories. Especially
inclined to portrait, the artist authentically animates the memory
of people of a certain era. His pictorial expression is a unique
witness of the existence of original art in our region.
He had his first exhibition in Dobrača, then Kragujevac, Jagodina, Belgrade. His participation in the First Triennial of Self-taught Visionary Art organised by Museum of Naïve and Marginal Art at “Cvijeta Zuzorić” Art Pavilion in Belgrade (2016) was noteworthy and brought him Grand Prix for the Exhibited Works. Since 2017 he has participated in Art Colonies, traditionally organised by MNMA as well. The paintings of Miodrag Pavlović Dragomirac are part of many private and public collections in the country and abroad. Museum of Naïve and Marginal Art in Jagodina included the works of this artist in its collection in 2016, since when they have been on permanent display.
