ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Serbia, but with an international artistic language, Deja Mar is the artistic pseudonym of Deyan Clement, a young artist with a surprising trajectory.

Creating in diverse and complex mediums, such as photography, performance and collage, Deja manages to achieve excellency in each one of his creative branches, what attracted the interest of international companies to invest in his artworks. The artist's themes are also diverse, social critic, the questioning of the being and the modern figure of the artist; are some of the themes that Deja imprints on his artistic production.

IN MY OWN WORDS
“For me as an artist collage is important mental practice and as much as I’m working in this area I am always able to surprise myself and find something new. It is my kind of time, when the entire world is silenced and I can start to listen not what is outside, but inside of me.
The artist Helen Frankenthaler said once that in relations with people, as in art, if you always stick to style, manners, and what will work, and you're never caught off guard, then some beautiful experiences never happen. And truly what I always wanted from my work process is to surprise me. To have as little control as I can, to let the shapes and colors choose me not otherwise. That’s why I consider my work unpredictable till the moment I feel that is finished.”
