ABOUTH THE AUTHOR
Aleksandar Djalek Djordjevic is a photographer, graphic designer translator born in Belgrade. He spent a large part of his life in Germany. While living in Berlin he started taking pictures of graffiti and continued to do so upon his return in Belgrade. The collection grew and now amounts to more than 8000 images. His aim was to present this documented artwork to the public, and the result is the book Street art Belgrade which is bilingual (the texts are in Serbian, and two published versions of the book are in English and in French)
“Graffiti are accessible to all but, because of their exposure to weather conditions and emotions, fleeting by nature. We wish to preserve at least a part of that magic with this book and exhibition and hope to inspire you to experience it on the streets of Belgrade.”
