Aleksandar Antonijevic

Aleksandar Antonijevic (b. 1969) is an award winning Canadian fine art photographer, born in Pozarevac, former Yugoslavia.
He extended his love of dancing from the stage to the camera, implementing the same principles of form and space into his passion behind the lens. Mr Antonijevic deals primarily with the form of the human body and portraiture.
The artist was influenced by the form of ancient Greek monumental sculptures, the work of August Rodin and his ability to model the complexity and the elegance of the human figure; the highly stylized and provocative contemporary photography of Robert Mapplethorpe as well as the old masters of Dutch painting, with their control of light and understated observation of action.
Mr Antonijevic’s art works are in private and public collections in Canada, USA and Europe. He has produced 8 solo exhibits and twice participated in Contact Scotia Bank Photography Festival in Toronto, Canada.
The artist lives and works in Toronto.
