Upcoming Exhibition at the Australian Centre for Christianity & Culture: Icons & Contemporary Art by Michale Galovic
Our partner the Australian Centre for Christianity & Culture will be holding an exhibition from artist and iconographer Michael Galovic, which will showcase selected examples of all the streams of art Michael has been cultivating over the last 30 years. This will be the first time all the pieces will be displayed together, providing a very rare if not unique collection of traditional icons, contemporary religious art, replicas of Renaissance art, a selected body of work on Uluru, and a selected body of work on the theme of Icarus.
Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Michael Galovic is a graduate of the Belgrade Academy of Applied Arts in 1974. He began painting icons in early 1970 under the influence and guidance of his step-father, himself a painter, conservator, and restorer of old icons and frescos in Serbia. Following an international career in tourism and as an interpreter and translator, Michael moved to Australia in 1990 and resumed art and iconography as a full time profession.
Since then, his work has been exhibited in shows throughout Australia and the world and he has completed commissions for numerous private collectors, over one hundred churches and institutions such as colleges, universities, spiritual centres and libraries.
All works will be available for sale during the exhibition.
