Sinisha S. Kashawelski

Born in 1969 in Kumanovo, Macedonia.

Lives and works as an independent artist in Saint Paul de Vence /France and Kumanovo/ Macedonia

His art is predominantly based around surrealism, finely knitted with motives which come out from the reach Macedonian tradition. His works unite elements structured of realism of the old masters coupled with surrealistic elements structured around our past, present and future. Most of his works are done in oil on canvas, however I do endeavour to use my skills in producing icons on wood done in the very best traditional Byzantine style; something that is still present and well preserved in my country. I also do mix media works staging both traditionalism and surrealism.

Finished a College of Applied Arts in Skopje, Macedonia, where he also graduated at the Faculty of Fine Arts.
