Mr Milan Stašević


This exceptional energy, which this young creator posses, forced her to finish two Master Studies at Faculty of Fine Arts in Novi Sad and so she was the first student who achieved this. Her studies were crowned by her independent exhibition at the Museum of Modern Arts, in Novi Sad, in 2011. Thanks to her exhibition, she received a fellowship from the Foundation Ruth Katzman in New York, which is given only two fellowship holders in a year. Then came fellowships from India (Raghurajpur International Art/ Craft Exchange) and Finland (Artles creative center, Hämeenkyrö). In 2013. Gala was received en invitation by Guy Malevez, who is a famous owner of a gallery in Belgium, to cover by painting a historical part of town Namur. This mural was very important for Gala, because she was lined up in the group of artists who cherish tradition of Belgium. After that came invitation to participate in a

Zhangjiajie Creation Camp in China, three invitations to visit Slovenia, which one of them was an International Symposium of Ceramics. The invitation for an independent exhibition came from one of the most prestige art gallery “Artifact” on Manhattan. In 2015. Gala will have an opportunity to exhibit her paintings at the Takahara Furusato Museum in Japan, after she has been learning Japanese for three years.

Her work has been awarded with a fellowship for a young talents, an award for the best drawing and the most successful artistic value at painting. Gala exhibited not only in Serbia, but in other countries: Canada, the USA, Mexico, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Russia, Portugal, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro.

At the moment she is Ph.D. final examination candidate at Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade (second academic year). The beginning of her Ph.D. final examination was followed by her book reviews in literary journals. Gala’s work is a timeless salvation from the claws of death. The tragedy is her goal, which leads her to her own freedom and this is the base where she works. To be fulfilled, but not arrogant, to have great difficulties with an internal endlessness and an outside tension, means to her to live so intensive to have a feeling to die from her life. Gala turns to herself as her endless goal.
