This is a wonderful part of Belgrade / Beogradu, and it is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, in my opinion. I would love to spend time there, and if I could be a student again, I would think it would be an amazing life experience to attend the Faculty of Applied Arts, there.
I would want to learn artistic blacksmithing. I wonder if they have a facility for metal working? Or glass blowing would be fantastic to learn.
How can I find out then, what kinds of applied arts are in demand, and likely to remain in demand for my lifetime, to have a career? I think I need to do more googling. In the meantime, I better get some kind of a real job.
Possible areas of art application are virtually countless, so the study programs on “Faculty of applied arts in Belgrade” cover a very broad spectre of subjects in this vast field. There are number of modules within three main study programs:
- Applied arts modules: Applied painting, applied sculpture, ceramics, stage costume, scenography, modern fashion design, graphic design (applied graphics and books graphics), photography, animation (animation, web design)
- Design modules: Graphic design, industrial design, interior design and design of furniture, textile design
- Conservation and restoration modules: Conservation and restoration of paintings and paper art works, conservation and restoration of sculptures and archaeological artefacts
Cardboard and metal construction
This cardboard and metal construction intended as scenography object was presented at the final exhibition at the end of summer semester by students of scenography module. The object was exhibited within the Faculty of applied arts, on the basic location at Kralja Petra 4.
Interesting tapestry showing projection touching hands is work of students of textile module studying for master’s degree. The work was exhibited in the gallery of the Belgrade fortress in May 2015.
The work presented here is a sculpture which was a part of one student’s exhibition. The work is focused on the examination of changing nature of materials and their behavior in the transformation processes of molding, duplication and exposure to environmental conditions. Material used is paraffin – a derivative of organic origin which is obtained by processing industry, and whose uniqueness lies in its inclination to metamorphoses over time.
Unique spiky west
This unique spiky west made from recycled materials was “tailored” by students of stage costume module, as a part of international collaboration on one art project. It was exhibited in Zagreb in Town museum.
Phantasms on wheels
“Phantasms on wheels” is name of the series of art works made by faculty professor Nikola Bozinovic. The work was presented at Belgrade Design Week. Objects are created by transformation of original car parts. Artist highlights the “personality” of objects giving them antrophomorphic features: eyes (headlights), a mouth (refrigerator), the internal organs (carburettor), blood (fuel), skeleton (body).
There is one interesting sculpture in the Faculty yard (on one of 4 different locations where lectures are being held). It represents a woman dancing or running.
