Rade Petrasevic (b. 1982) is a Bosnian-Austrian painter who lives and works in Vienna, Austria. Petrasevic’s paintings use a distinctive and vibrant palette, which is intensified by his use of flat, expressive brushstrokes that handle the oil paint as if it were a marker pen. This lends a highly contemporary feel to the work and all-over composition that is imbued with starting dynamism – referencing painters such as Henri Matisse and David Hockney without becoming a pastiche.
Selected solo and group show of Petrasevic’s work include Christine König Galerie, Vienna (2020); ALMA ZEVI Celerina, Switzerland (2019); KÖNIG2, Vienna (2019); Friedman Benda in New York (2019); Salon, Hamburg, Germany (2019); Charim Galerie, Vienna (2018); Büro Weltausstellung, Vienna (2018); Everybody Needs Art, Budapest (2017); Limoncello Gallery, London (2016); Circle Culture in Berlin (2015); The Breeder, Athens (2015); and the Breeder at Frieze London (2015). Rade Petrasevic’s work has been recently included in KISS, a commission for the Kunsthalle Wein, Vienna (2020).
