Braco Dimitrijević

Braco Dimitrijević (Sarajevo, 1948) is a Paris-based Bosnian and Yugoslavian artist, pioneer of conceptual art. In the 1970s, Dimitrijević gained attention when he began his Casual Passer-by series, featuring very big close-up photographic portraits of everyday people that were hung on buildings and billboard in different cities across Europe and America.

In the mid-seventies he started incorporating in his installations original paintings borrowed from museum collections. This project, Triptychos Post Historicus, was realized in numerous museums around the world such as the Tate Gallery in London, the Louvre in Paris , the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York (among others), and unites in a harmonious synthesis high art and everyday objects. The artist’s statement “Louvre is my studio, street is my museum” expresses both the dialectical and transgressive nature of his oeuvre. In the early 1980s, Dimitrijević started making installations with wild animals. In 1998, a big solo show of his at Paris Zoo featurd installations in the cages of lions, tigers, crocodiles, camels and bisons and was visited by over a million people.
