Author: Nikola Olic

Nikola Olic is a Serbian photographer living and working in Dallas, Texas, focusing on architectural photography and abstract structural quotes that reimagine their subjects in playful, dimensionless and disorienting ways. Each photograph in the above collection is accompanied with the exact coordinates and a short description where it was taken, offering a direct connection between the unexpected visual space of the photograph, and the real world of cars, buildings, people and noise in which it exists. This is intended as a demystifying tool essential to abstract photography, reminding that these subjects -- beautiful or otherwise -- are on every corner, in places we visit and places we live in. Finally, Olic's collection hopes to invite readers to explore the coordinates that accompany every photograph, and how those structures we encounter interact with their surroundings, giving us the ability to, in essence, paint with architecture. By re-appropriating urban entities we come across as our colors and brushes, these guerrilla photography exercises can help create new intellectual and philosophical visual spaces worth formalizing and exploring. Nikola's photography has appeared in various galleries, art events, museums, magazines, newspapers, spaces and websites around the world, including Wired.com, BBC News, The Guardian, CNN Style, Yahoo.com, Dwell.com and ArchDaily, and is a part of permanent collections in select US and European museums, as well as many private collections. Mr. Olic is represented by AfterImage Gallery in Dallas, TX, one of the oldest art galleries in the United States dedicated solely to photography.
