Torpedo Talks: Dejan Jovanovic

August 16, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Dejan Jovanovic (Studio 15) has been an artist for more than 20 years. He has spent his life immersed in applied art and high craft. Trained as a sculptor in Serbia, he has been established in the DC area since 2002, where Dejan Studio Jewelry began.

“My inspiration comes from the natural world and the metals I use to create my organically inspired, textured wearable art. My pieces are subtly textured in a combination of colors to reveal the quality of the metal, creating harmony by the interplay of the various elements.”

Dejan draws inspiration from nature and the universal language of shape and form, translating subtle organic shapes and asymmetry into his pieces. His work demonstrates his exploration of ancient metalsmithing forms and techniques which he revives with a modern, sophisticated sensibility. His pieces embody a sense of both elegance and rarity.

From as early as he can remember, he was fascinated by creating shapes and had the freedom to enjoy creating in his father’s sculptor’s studio. He also trained as a sculptor at Belgrade University School of Applied Arts in Serbia and graduated top of his class. He later received his Master’s of Fine Arts in metal design from East Carolina University School of Art and Design in North Carolina.
