I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at nikola.milosevic777@gmail.com

Sally West is an Australian contemporary artist born in 1971, currently living in Sydney. She is one of the leading artists in Australia, and a winner of several competitions.

She received her Bachelor of Visual Communications from KVB College of Visual Communications, Noth Sydney, in 1995, and has studied Painting and Drawing at Eastern Suburbs Evening College, Waverley Woollahra, and Drawing and Fine Art Studies at Nowra Tafe, Bomaderry. Environment is a huge inspiration, as well as the people who surround her. Landscape West can imagine herself in is perfect inspiration, just as is the weather. She prefers painting outdoors, but occasionally works in studio, mainly when working on portraits. Her dining room, with its amazing light and a great view, also serves as a studio.

West takes a fresh approach, making amazing textual surfaces with tick strokes of a brush. All of her pieces are her personal response to a specific moment in time, and she becomes completely engulfed in the environment while she paints. Her palette is subtle and she applies paint boldly.
She has exhibited her work throughout Australia, and also in New York and London. West has won Portia Geach Prize from SH Ervin Gallery in 2013 and 2014, New South Wales Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize, Salon Des Refuses, the Wynne Prize, Charlatan Ink Prize in Manhattan, New York, and has won the Pacific Palms Art Prize 3 times.
