Aleksandar Dumic’s short animations are simple but gratifying. Taking to the notion that life imitates art and vice versa, Dumic told Ballpit Magazine that “life itself is an Art. My mission is to record the moment and steal it from oblivion. Art helps us to perceive the unknown and to demystify taboos.”
“Over time my style has evolved,” he explained. “In the beginning, I used the details and textures to emphasize the story. As I started to deal with animation my illustrations have become simplified and more adapted to animation. Animation has enabled me to express myself in many ways. My style is a combination of smooth and flat shapes which are emphasized by the movement and wide range of colors.”
Talking about his artistic process, Dumic shared that “everything starts when I lie down to sleep. I try to write down or sketch all the ideas that are rushing thru my mind. For the animation purposes, I make storyboards which I later reproduce in a digital form. The script defines the style. I’m using a wide range of colors to create illustrations. The crucial aspect of animation is timing and emphasizing the right moment.”
