Nikola Faller sees art in everything.
Nikola Faller- master of sculpture, believes that art can not disappear but just change its shape…like everything else in nature.
Nikola Faller is a master of sculpture and well-known multimedia artist born in Osijek.
An association for the promotion of artistic awareness in the society, which has since evolved into an international SLAMA – Land art festival. In addition to the long-running festival, they carry out projects such as The Four Seasons and the Creative Lab, which is a continuation of the Four Seasons project.
He has participated in various land art events and festivals in Slovakia, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Germany, Italy, and Turkey. In addition to land art and environmentally conscious sculpture, he is involved in drawing, illustration, and performance. The peculiarity of land art, as a trend in contemporary art, is leaving the galleries and museums so that it develops monumental projects in the open space, which opposes the commercialization of art, adopting and applying ecological principles in its approach.
The unusually low water level of the Drava river proved to be a challenge for the well-known Osijek multimedia artist Nikola Faller of the Slama Land Art Association. Between their traditional autumn and winter art creations in nature as part of the Four Seasons campaign, Nikola and his associate decided to use such a low water level and paint sand on the left bank of the Drava River.
Land art or art in nature is geared towards creating in harmony with nature. Following the rhythm of the seasons, materials specific for that period or season are used to create art in nature, which is therefore generally easily accessible and economical. The works are made under open skies in contact with the earth and the elements and are influenced by a wide variety of weather conditions.
In autumn, Nikola creates reliefs, in the spring he does that with mowing the grass, in winter he makes sculptures of snow, and in summer on Drava river, he draws in the sand. Nikola created a spectacular sand art for a festival in Opuzen. He created his sand art between the tides, and therefore his art has a short life span, but his installations are very specific and will leave you breathless.
