An illuminated world

  • • Nemanja finds endless opportunities to express his ideas
  • • He graduated from the University of Arts in Belgrade
  • • Inspired by nature, he has an interest in illuminating objects

Nemanja Nikolic Prika took a ceramics class when he was 16, just as a hobby. But it was a revelation to him, and almost immediately he began to consider that he could become an artist. Today, every day is a journey as he pursues his research into ceramics, focusing on ideas related to movement and light. The most important thing for him is that his craft has a real application in life, however he also wants his pieces to convey emotions. He trusts his material to show him the best, most satisfactory outcomes.
