Veronique Ivanović, K75 is a citizen of the world who started creating art at a young age. She was born and lived in Paris/France, London/Great Britain, then moved the United States.

She has been a professor/interpreter and volunteer of French language in New York City, and Atlanta, where she resides. Discovering and taking a deep appreciation for the surrealist movement, Veronique Ivanović K75 abstract art is inspired by geometric structures with experimentation of both subtle and bold integration of lines and colors.

Veronique Ivanović K75 has been working on found and recycled materials for a long time, favoring acrylics paint and collage.

For her, giving discarded things a second chance will help ameliorate the sustainability issues humanity has bequeathed itself. And, also allowing these otherwise discarded things another likelihood.

I was told by professional artists and, gallery owners that an artist should not be all over the place with her/his body of work, because she/he looses her/his audience.

It is very difficult for me to do just that, as I have a Ying/Yang personality type.

Because of difficult times in my life picking up a pencil, a brush, and my camera helped me translate feelings and emotions; captured things that I see and, one might not see, or be trying not to see!

I create, take pictures of what my instant awareness dictates me at that very moment, an intricate, mix of geometrical forms and unusual colors, a bug resting on a person, a graffiti in an abandoned building, or a person lost in her/his thought. This sometimes, drives me to work in series.

I am always fascinated by the dichotomy of the world! Hazy heat and reflections; lights being jealous of the shadows, strong colors against a cloudless sky, chaos and serenity. I like the architectural, the body of human nature, the landscapes that can be found in cities, people and nature alike. I have found myself attracted by multicultural and, multi societal consciousness.

My work, tender, eloquent, provocative and painful at times mirrors my “many lives” and my many foreign travels, as well as my view on cultural, social, and political issues.

Take the time to see me through.
