Academy painter Ratko Šoć’s exhibition of paintings and drawings entitled “Fantasy - Paintings and Drawings,” celebrating 60 years of the artist’s work, will open on Tuesday, 10th September, at 8 pm at the Gallery of Solidarity in Kotor Old Town. The exhibition is organised by Municipal Public Institution “Museums” (OJU Museums) and will be opened by journalist Slavko Mandić, Director of Skala Radio.
Of Šoć, art critic Dejan Đorić said, “Šoć is one of the Montenegrin “barbarogen” artists who conquered Belgrade and indeed Europe with his volcanic imagination and sense of artistry. Born in Cetinje in 1938, he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Novi Sad, but has never associated himself with urban trivialities.”
Ratko Šoć has had over 50 solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad, is the recipient of numerous awards, and currently lives and works in Vrbas. His many decades of work include numerous pieces in the area of painting, graphic design, caricature, illustration, scenography, and he is also known as an aphorist.
The exhibition “Fantasy - Paintings and Drawings,” by Ratko Šoć will be open until 5th October at the Gallery of Solidarity.
