Publications Drawing is the main form of the artistic expression of Mirko Sevic. There is nothing strange about that considering that a line and a pencil sketch have no limits in their usage. At the centre of Mirko?s interest, above all I would say, is the evil, the obscure part of a human nature or society (collective evil), as well as the final destructive result the evil has on a human being. Mirko presents dramatic evidence and depicts all the above in effective drawing of deformed and naked female figures. The evil within us, pathological in its essence, universal in meaning, is expressed in drawings of frighteningly crippled individuals and malformed foetuses. The evil in action, the one provoking severe human suffering, utter despair, and the final cry of the dying, is visible in the same precise and detailed portrayal of crumpled and disfigured medley of bodies. Firm and expressive in his technique, the artist succeeds by almost shocking us, in confronting us with the intensity of his authentic and sincere statement.

Why make art? I am a painter of the darkness for a drop of good.
Irretrievably, I immersed into the darkest corners of spieitual destructiveness of a human being in hope to describe it, to stay for a while. Humbleness of those who suffer captured my sensibility.
I resist nit, I seek for the wau out.
My images tried to be a message, no one replied.
Now, they are just a sceam and I am not sure anyone can hear it.
