Emotion, talent and creativity mark the coming of Andjelka Radojevic to Brazil

Mosaic of Andjelka Radojevic (detail)

The creation and the learning, as life teaches, are processes that generate a kind of pleasurable pain. The workshops with the Serbian artist Andjelka Radojevic, in Brazil, showed exactly that: a line that involved the participants in an attempt to get it right, give the best of themselves and repeat the cut as many times as necessary to celebrate the result. Details that surrendered and strengthened bonds of friendship accompanied by moments of great emotions, feelings, talents, plus lots, and lots of work. All in the name of art in mosaic.


Altogether, there were three workshops in Depósito do Mosaico in Curitiba: two "portraits" and one of "eyes and birds", organized by mosaicist Rosangela Kusma Gasparin in partnership with artist Bea Pereira and the manager Leticia Melara.

The results were surprising. Women of different carrears, professional mosaicists or only for hobby who had never done a portrait in mosaic before, created beautiful pieces, valued with personal touches that made them unique, exclusive. Expressing feelings through the eyes, make the mouth become natural, put the shadows in the right places and other techniques ... demanded patience, courage and determination. And the birds, in the hands of the mosaicists, got the movement , light and color and revealed that inspiration is all around, in feathers, in nature.

Andjelka proposed and succeeded masterfully, to teach the way of creativity associated with notions of composition, color, light and shadows. "In the mosaic, each one must have its own parts. It is rewarding when, after a workshop, each student has a different piece of work, regardless of whether they started from the same figure. The important thing, besides the correct technique is the personal characteristic ", teaches the master.

Representatives of Mato Grosso, Santa Catarina, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and several cities in Paraná came to learn, with lots of laughter, to be delighted with the talent of the mosaics and even go to tears of satisfaction and gratitude for the acquired content. Speaking of tears, not only the students were moved by the end of the course, but also Andjelka, giving thanks for the way she was warmly received. Moments of pure emotion that gave birth in the mosaics world, to a warm relationship between Brazil and Serbia. Different countries with different stories and distinct habits and far away from each other, now joined by the tesserae and the art of learning and teaching. Unmissable moments that will surely be recorded in the memory of all that were present.


The success and results achieved raised the possibility of other international masters coming to Curitiba. "We're thinking of bringing, perhaps once a year, an international workshop to further enhance the mosaic art in Brazil," says Bea Pereira. This year, it is already confirmed for the month of April, at the Deposito do Mosaico, the presence of the artist Marcelo de Melo, Brazilian mosaicist living in Holland for 16 years, recognized internationally for his structural art.



Whoever did not come to Curitiba will be able to attend workshops with Andjelka Radojevic in Serbia. The artist prepares courses for foreigners in her country and there are events scheduled for the month of June with the confirmed presence of Brasilian mosaicists.
