Melbourne-based mosaicist has been working with mosaics for
the last 11 years. After years of oil painting he came across
mosaics as an art form and discovered new challenges and possibilities
in its application. On a few occasions Gordan visited Ravenna,
Italy, the renown center of mosaic art. He completed a master
course and brought new techniques, skills and great inspiration
back to Australia. Today Gordan is one of the finest Australian
original pieces of distinction using superior materials with
the highest standard of workmanship. His creations include 2
and 3 dimensional works such as murals, tables, sculptures and
fountains, etc. Designs are often developed together with the
client, designer or architect in a process that takes into account
the colors, style, environment and theme of mosaics that would
best suit, clients’ needs, and complement their lifestyle.
Venetian smalti and marble are chiefly used to achieve both contemporary
and classical mosaics of the highest quality. Contemporary works reflect the influence of the natural world together
with the abstract and subjective. Ancient Greek and Roman designs provide Gordan with endless inspiration for the
classical pieces often sought by his clients.
