Sinisa was born on October 25th, 1954 in Sarajevo, Bosnia. He graduated from the University of Sarajevo with a degree in Architecture. Sinisa's travels through the world of art began at an early age. Sketch books filled with ideas and intricate drawings were his best friend throughout childhood. Artwork quickly became an important component of his school's exhibitions and competitions. At age 15 he sold his first painting.

Sinisa's infinite thirst for experimenting in expressing his artistic personality has helped him create a wide variety of works in various mediums and styles. He received strong academic training in perspective drawing, composition and history of art as well as architecture from his professors, which were all known artists and masters in their professions.

Paintings from period of 1979-1992 combine ideas taken from his national heritage, European history, romantic landscapes and architecture. In that period Sinisa's original paintings were an inevitable part of galleries from Sarajevo, Belgrade, Dubrovnik, Korcula and other cites.

With the start of war in Bosnia, Sinisa and his family escaped from Saraverjo, barely saving their lives' and leaving everything behind, including Sinisa's artwork. Everything disappeared in the disasters of war. From 1992-1997, Sinisa and his family lived in Belgrade, where they began their new life. In December of 1997 Sinisa was able to move to the United States to begin a new life as both an artist and an architect. New ideas, horizons and temptations brought Sinisa a whole new level of inspiration, and formed his unique style of artistic expression. He places his paintings into "windows of feelings". "Seeing things through a window gives us a sense of discovering something new, or remember something we used to have", says Sinisa.

"Energy of emotions, and it's channels are visible through my artwork, and that is what excites me." According to Sinisa, the key to those emotions is in the artistic portrayal of those moments or images in our lives that we would like to freeze in time forever; available anytime to allow us to feel that moment again. In an expression of that philosophy, Sinisa is proud to introduce the "Window to the Soul" series. Each piece portrays emotional moments such as love, passion, power, ambition, courage or compassion with a story behind each piece and clues to the story in most pieces. He invites you to study each piece and enjoy the feelings portrayed.
