Biography


Goran Cpajak was born in 1963. in Prijepolje, the youngest of six artistically gifted children. Only he and his two years older brother Djordje have chosen art as their life callings. Upon finishing Deign Art School in Split and graduation from Faculty of Applied Erts in Belgrade, his interest for sculpture brought him to Pietrasanta, a small town in Italy, known for it's caves which together with nearby Carrara is recognized as sculpting capital of the world. In that cosmopolitan and artistic atmosphere infused with marble dust he made long-lasting friendships while gaining knowledge and experience. As very young sculptor, he won big international competitions for sculptures in permanent collections in museums of modern art, and thus avoided the destiny of being stonemason assistant. He has had over forty personal and group exhibitions on five continents and he has won prestigious international prizes. His sculptures adorn scuares and public spaces of many cities. Presently he lectures on Belgrade Faculty of Applied Arts, divides his life between Serbia and Italy, enjoys spending time with his four children and dedicates himself to sculpture.
