Bostjan Jurecic Vega is a Ljubljana, Slovenia based painter. Born in 1969, he finished studies of fine art at the Ljubljana Academy of Fine Arts in 1998. He has participated in many group and solo exhibitions. His theoretical work must be mentioned, as he works as a reporter, critic and commentator at Arts department of TV Slovenia.
The paintings from "Tribalismus Urbanismus" series depict
modern urban man, who likesto think of himself as being civilised, but who, in reality has never risen above group, tribal conscience.
Vega is prone to working fast. He can not sit in his studio whole day. If something does not work , he tears it apart and starts anew. Vega's way of thinking somewhat corresponds with that of artists like pollock, Basquiat and Dubuffet and conteporary thinkers like U.G. and Nisargadatta.
