Ivan Butorac is based in Los Angeles, CA.

"Love for art started at an early age, I remember coming home from school with friends and watching their reaction after seeing my parents art that was everywhere in the house, it was magical, I discovered the power art and color have on human emotion and mood."  Ivan Butorac
Heavily influenced by his parents who are both established artists, Butorac was always in a state of motion and experimented with a multitude of media. He studied at the Arts Academy in Belgrade, and always in flux later in 2014 spent a year working for the artist Saint Clair Cemin in his studio in Brooklyn, NY. Seeing what is then dreaming and creating a space for this new reality is what Butorac has done since he was a child. His work sits between meaning and no meaning; abstract and non-abstract, also geometric. He is not interested in conveying a message, but more interested in posing questions:
What does this look like? 
Does it remind me of something? 
How does this make me feel?

"Art is about creating a space for the viewer. It is the discovery of one's own possibilities. It's about freedom, self expression, following your interests and going beyond the rational mind. I am interested in bringing light into the world." Ivan Butorac
