SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Ever since his youth he expressed interest in miniature, and since January 2010. he has been making sculptures on graphite pencils.

Up until this point he had many solo exhibits and has taken participation in dozens of group exhibits. Jasenko Đorđević’s artwork can be found in private collections across the world and ever since 2013. his work has become a part of permanent exhibition in the Cumberland Pencil Museum (UK).
