Uroš Tošković is the most prominent living Montenegrin painter.

In 1956, he moved from Montenegro to Paris, where he graduated from the School of Fine Arts, the class of Maurice Brianchon. He lived in Paris until 1976 where he was one of the founders of the YU painter colony in Paris. His stay in France was wrapped up in the mystery of mysticism and the Bohemian-Hippy philosophy of life. He collaborated with Belmondo, De Sick, Sartre, Pop, Boro Pekic, and radio with Picasso, Dali, Ionesco, and others.

In 1957, Uroš Tošković was one of the founders of the Society of Baltazar, whose members are Leonid Sheyka, Siniša Vuković, Miro Glavurtić, Dado Đurić, Mišel Kontić, Vukota Vukotić, Peđa Ristić and Olja Ivanjicki, which later (1958) became the Society "Mediala."

According to many European art critics, he is one of the best pencil artists in the world of all time. Since 1996 he has lived and worked in Bar
