"You can never explain to someone who uses god's gift to enslave, that you have used god's gift to be free."





Goran Hamsic was born in former Yugoslavia, In a family of artist musicians and painters, where instruments, pencils, and paint brushes were his playground from an early age.


1985-1989  Fine arts Academy / Graphic Design  / Sarajevo


1995 After the war in former Yugoslavia immigrates to Canada and enrolls private college in 1998 studying graphic design multimedia and technology in IAODT


Having lived the horrors of war in Bosnia from 1990-1995, a part of his work rests on memories and feelings from what he experienced back then. Remembering well the massacres that happened during this war. The images of his compatriots being killed at the marketplace have left a lasting trace on his memories.


Paintings modify perceptions. The duality of the connection between life and death is often expressed in his works. The way for him to live with it is to express his feelings and memories through art. The quest for beauty based on compliance with established rules, techniques and themes could not translate the ardor of his creations His works often feature both living and ghostly figures, with a little dash of the abstract presence that artist worked by applying different techniques.


The use of dark color shades and violent reds are added to the presence of mute human figures from which emanate darkness. His paintings sometimes seem like they weep. The artist wants his canvas to be soaked in the oil of the paint he uses. To achieve this, he does not use brushes, but homemade tools that give his artwork a unique signature. With this technique, the liquid penetrates the canvas, giving a symbiotic effect. Goran’s work is in constant evolution, and in the experimental phase and with time, we can see the pieces starting to lose their brutality to gain in subtlety.


Trough the last 23 years of living and working in Canada, Spain, and France, Goran has worked and accomplished many different pro bono art projects, multimedia projects, exhibitions and a wide variety of other visual presentations. He has collaborated with Many artist and enterprises from Canada and Province of Quebec in last 2 decades.
