Milosh Rosic, known as Mischa is born 1952 in Yugoslavia where he studied fine art for 5 years. After his studies Mischa taught art in secondary school for a while but soon became restless and at the beginning of his career he spent some time travelling in Europe, staying in Austria, Switzerland and Germany. His travels took him eventually to England and finally Scotland where he met his wife and spent 8 years. In January 1980 Mischa and family moved to Sweden with the intention of staying for 2 years. However Mischa felt content in his new homeland and time past, along with his need to be on the move. He now lives in Hjärup (Jakriborg) on the outskirts of Lund.Mischa doesn't consider himself inspired by any one special stile of art
I paint what I feel like painting! The motive and the stile can vary according to the moment, so that's why I try to be open to everything. I believe that if one limits oneself it can easily result in one becoming a slave under that one stile. As an artist I find inspiration all around me, in music, nature, photography and in people. Some of my paintings have somewhat of a poetical or romantic message whereas others can be satirical or political. I paint what touches me without the inhibition of any one stile. As with music, sometimes one is in the mood for a nice classical piece whereas another time its rock or pop that is interesting. That's how it is with my art! Perhaps its an outlet for my restless spirit!
Mischa enjoys wandering in nature, or through the streets, where he can
experience, rather than simply see, his surroundings and fellow people.
For me painting is a way of life.
With that thought it's not surprising that Mischa is a productive artist. Different motives however take different lengths of time to produce. He explains that a landscape is often a momentary inspiration, which fastens and is conveyed to canvas in one sweep, whereas a surrealistic painting needs much more thought and therefore takes much more time.
In general it is the feeling that is important, both for the artist and the public. It's impossible to force forward a motive without feeling for it. Ones best results are achieved where feelings are strongest.
