Statement

Mirko Junkovic

Teacher, artist and arts education manager.

I was born in 1955 in Warwick, U.K. of Serbian-Montenegrin parentage. Having studied pedagogy, fine-art and architecture, I became a teacher and subsequently, for much of my working life, I have supported and managed other people’s creative endeavours.
From 1998-2017 I ran a large visual arts department in a sixth-form college in Cambridge, U.K.
My own work represents my wide-ranging interests across the visual arts and is steered by an intuitive and exploratory approach to materials and their innate properties. I am particularly interested in abstract forms of expression that are underpinned by a belief in the primacy of drawing.
I have had several one-man exhibitions and exhibited at the Royal Academy summer show. More recently I have participated in Cambridge Open Studios.
