Radoš Antonijević (1969, Serbia) is visual artist and educator. He finished Master degree on Faculty of Fine Art in Belgrade (Sculpture department) where he is currently finishing PhD project. He is an assistent professor at same Faculty where teaching Sculpture in metal and wood. Educated as a classical sculptor he re-examines the medium of sculpture and its borders through the creation of artworks which problematize the questions of function, materiality and perception. This formal research is always involved in the topics that touch neuralgic points of life, dealing with the aspects of history, politics, culture and society. His works of art which confront the function and shape have the epic nature with the ingredients of comic and tragic in the same picture. This epic nature is evident in his need for monumental and self-sufficient forms which can be seen in his tents-churches, personal museums of contemporary art or a church military barbecue trailer. Also he is member and co – founder of the Free Artistic Association “Third Belgrade”. He works and lives in Smederevo and Belgrade.
