Marko Modic (born 26 August 1958 in Ljubljana) is a Slovenian photographer, painter and visual artist from Ljubljana, Slovenia.[1]

Photographic and artistic circles of the world attributed Marko Modic a special place because of his unique and colorful works of art.[2]

Biography[edit]

In 1976 he got his first camera Praktica from his father. At the beginning he worked in black and white photographs and later embarked on a more complex photo-montage that he uses also in his work today. Photograph is used occasionally as a basis on which then he draws a picture. In his work are photographs, paintings, books, as well as performances. Modic's enigmatic photographic works show an extreme sensibility towards perception and use of colors. He captures details of everyday objects or places and uncommolnly presents them in insolation, neither in a content nor in perspective-evoking ambiguous interpretation and curiosity...[3]

In 1988 Marko Modic won a "Zlata ptica", confession for Slovenian creators and executants for extraordinary achievements on different fields of cultural creation.[4]

Marko Modic has exhibited his photographs widely at home, in Italy, Ecuador, Argentina, UK, Canada... In 2011 he has an exhibition "Written on skin of the Earth" [5] in Tivoli Park in Ljubljana, Slovenia and in Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, Canada.[6]

Marko Modic lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia (2012).
