Dejan Jovanovic

Jewelry artist, Dejan Jovanovic was born in Serbia and has been established in Washington, DC since 2002. He graduated in applied sculpture from Belgrade University of the Arts, received his MFA in metal design from ECU School of Art and Design and has won numerous international awards and prizes.

.

He is inspired by exploration of archaic, particularly medieval, metal-smithing forms and techniques which he revives with a modern sensibility. He explores the possibilities for color, texture, surface finishes and connections in his pieces. The desire to explore the varied ways in which traditional jewelry design can be extended and the transitions from traditional perceptions of jewelry towards new artistic expressions is at the heart of all of Dejan's work. His training as a monumental sculptor translates to his work in smaller forms where he captures fluid sculptural movement informed by organic elements and rugged texture and explores the possibilities of combining negative spaces, abstract forms and lines and balanced proportions in his dynamic compositions.

Dejan has exhibited his work in the US and Europe. He has worked for fabrication and metal-smithing projects for the White House, Smithsonian Institution, Blair House and the Washington National Cathedral and has also worked for Tiffany & Co.
