Virginia Stojanovic (born 1959) is an American artist based in Chicago. She was born to a Bosnian mother and Croatian father in West Chicago, Illinois. Her parents were both painters.

Her art uses mixed media, often incorporating recycled or found objects. Her works are sometimes created by taking a subject and distorting it through the use of mirrors or by photographing the subject with a wide-angle lens and then collaging it onto a canvas. Stojanovic is known for her “quilts” made out of photographs that have been cut up into pieces and rearranged to create new images. Her work incorporates themes such as domesticity, sexuality, family, and relationships between women.*

Virginia Stojanovic has been an artist for over 20 years. She has a degree in Fine Arts from the Florence Academy of Art, Florence Italy. Her work has appeared in numerous galleries and art fairs in the United States, Canada and Europe. Virginia also teaches at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.

People need to make art to feel complete. Art is what makes people feel a sense of purpose, joy, and fulfillment. Art is something that everyone should be able to enjoy and value in their lives. You shouldn’t have to pay an extreme amount of money so you can admire one piece of art. Art should be available for all people, not just the rich ones.

I love IKEA. I go there almost every week, not only to buy things but also to look around. I dream of working at IKEA as a designer, and my ultimate goal is to create a new concept store.

IKEA already has boutiques in some cities like New York, Tokyo and Paris. They are very different from the stores spread all over the world, because they offer unique products with a special design created for that city.

It would be great if IKEA opens a boutique in Belgrade. The concept of the store would be based on locally produced products such as sculptures, paintings, furniture and other works of arts made from recycled materials and by local artists.

IKEA could also collaborate with local craftsmen to make furniture and decorative elements for the store.

I am sure that the boutique will attract numerous visitors both from Serbia and abroad, especially tourists. It will be a meeting point for artists – painters, sculptors and designers – who want to promote their work, exchange ideas and create something new together.”

Today, we are all artists. In a sense, it was always that way. Artists were the ones who made art. Everyone else just had life, or they didn’t have life because they were dead. Today, though, everyone makes art, and so it is hard to be an artist if you want to be one.

The most obvious problem is that there are so many of us, and each of us makes so much art that it is impossible to stand out. The second most obvious problem is that hardly anyone even looks at the art anymore; they just look at the numbers.

Taken together, those two problems make it very hard to be an artist today. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t possible. At least for a little while longer.

So then what?**
