Scroll down for english

 

Iako je rođen u Crnoj Gori, Budimir je najveći deo svog života proveo u Pančevu, gde je radio kao nadzorni tehničar u Rafineriji nafte.


Karikaturom je počeo da se bavi još u detinjstvu. Isprobao se u skoro svim likovnim tehnikama, ali u crtežu nalazi potpunu slobodu. Započinje ih tako što napravi nesvestan, automatski potez olovkom koji dalje uobličava u zoomorfne i antropomorfne oblike. Najčešće se pojavljuju ljudske glave iz kojih se rastežu, prepliću i upliću čudnovata bića nalik ribama, pticama, zmajevima i sl. Takođe, Budimir veoma često njegovo "životinjsko carstvo" smešta u pejzaž želeći da ga na taj način što više približi realnosti. Karikaturalnost se provlači kroz neke radove, ali više u funkciji grotesknog što daje posebnu draž njegom crtežu.

Od 2015. godine je član udruženja Art Brut Serbia. Nažalost, Budimir je umro 2018. godine u vreme trajanja velike grupne izlozbe Turbulences dans les Balkans u muzeju Halle Saint Pierre u Parizu, na kojoj je bio jedan od izlagača. 

U kolekciji Art Brut Serbia se nalazi 19 njegovih crteža.

-----ENGLISH-----

Although he was born in Montenegro, Budimir spent most of his life in Pancevo, where he worked as a supervisory technician in the Oil Refinery.


He started doing caricature in his childhood. He has tried almost all art techniques, but he finds complete freedom in drawing. He begins them by making an unconscious, automatic pencil stroke that he further shapes into zoomorphic and anthropomorphic shapes. Most often, human heads appear, from which strange creatures resembling fish, birds, dragons, etc., stretch, intertwine and intertwine. Also, Budimir very often places his "animal kingdom" in the landscape, wanting to bring it as close to reality as possible. Caricaturity runs through some works, but more in the function of the grotesque, which gives a special charm to his drawing.

Since 2015, he has been a member of the Art Brut Serbia association. Unfortunately, Budimir died in 2018 during the large group exhibition Turbulences dans les Balkans at the Halle Saint Pierre museum in Paris, where he was one of the exhibitors.

There are 19 of his drawings in the collection of Art Brut Serbia.

Radovi iz serije Buđenje zla:

 

"Nesreću koju smo imali 1999., bombardovanje Nato alijanse, doživljavao sam najviše kroz brigu o porodici. Tada sam vodio i dnevnik i crtao, ljut i sa strepnjom čekao novi zvuk sirene koja nas je takođe plašila. Tada sam radio u Rafineriji koja je više puta bombardovana, gde su izginuli naši drugari s posla..."


Napomena: neki radovi su rađeni 2001. godine kao posledica posttraumatskih osećanja.

Works from the Evil Awakening series:

"The accident we had in 1999, the bombing of the NATO alliance, I experienced mostly through taking care of my family. During that period, I also kept a diary and drew, angry and anxiously waiting for the new sound of the siren, which also scared us. At that time, I worked in the Refinery that was bombed several times, where our friends from work perished..."

Note: some works were done in 2001 because of post-traumatic feelings.
