Vojislav Radovanović is a Serbian visual artist, art director, filmmaker, and independent curator based in Los Angeles, CA. Witnessing turbulent political unrest and war in the Balkan region in his youth, his visual and conceptual artwork advocates for beauty, environmentalism, mental health, and societal transmutation. His artwork often utilizes a conceptual concentration on wild plants, specifically weeds. The resilient, boundary-defying plants become a metaphor for nature’s powerful ingenuity. The symbolism and conceptualism of weeds also apply to multiple human aspects: its endurance, queer identity, the immigrant experience, and colonization.
Radovanović has presented his works internationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions. Important cultural institutions where he showed his works are Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Ronald H. Silverman fine Arts Gallery, Angels Gate Cultural Center, Brea Art Gallery (California, USA); Mall Galleries (London, Great Britain); UNESCO Headquarters, The Institut Suédois (Paris, France); Centre of Contemporary Art (Torun, Poland); The Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid - CBA (Madrid, Spain); Belgrade City Museum, Museum of Yugoslavia, National Library of Serbia and The White Palace (Belgrade, Serbia). Radovanović currently serves as community engagement artist at MOAH Lancaster as part of "Artists At Work" program supported by Mellon Foundation.
