Nemanja Mićević works as graphic designer at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Republic of Srpska (MoCARS), Bosnia and Herzegovina.
His passion for art showed early and led to his studies at the Academy of Arts in Banja Luka, which he completed in 2007. Two years later he obtained a Master’s degree in Theory of Art and Media on Interdisciplinary Studies at University of Arts in Belgrade, Serbia, and gained improved knowledge of art as a whole. During his art education he worked as a freelance graphic designer.
Nemanja began working for the MoCARS in 2018 and since then his life has turned upside down thanks to a lot of local, regional and international projects. At the Museum, besides graphic design (exhibition, catalog and packaging design, illustrations, and advertising materials), occasionally he would be in charge of campaigns, logistics, production, exhibition setup, photo documentation, video production, web administration, and motion graphics. He was in charge of creating the visual identity for the Bosnia and Herzegovina Pavilion at Venice Biennial in 2013 and 2017 and those projects definitely pushed his boundaries. His portfolio showcases working on the visual identity of Nadežda Petrović’s 30th Memorial (2020), and exhibition designs such as: Damien Hirst New Religion (2016, MoCARS), Grayson Perry The Vanity of Small Differences (2017, Art Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina, MoCARS), Brian Eno 77 Million Paintings (2018, History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina), and Perceptions (2019, MoCARS).
Nemanja sees the overall aim of the ReCulture project as very important for all its participants. He outlines that it’s a phenomenal opportunity to gain a modernized visual and communication style of Western Balkan cultural institutions, as well as a chance for young and talented designers to improve their knowledge and connections. He’s proud to be part of this great project and very excited with every next step of it.
