J. Mihailovic & A. Udvary (Violin/Cimbalom) at Julius Meinl Coffeehouse 

When: Sat., Aug. 8, 8 p.m. 2009
Jovan comes from Serbia, a land torn by war and hatred. In 1965 he left his country to seek political refuge in Sweden. In a year he had produced enough work to present a show at the prestigious Bohman Gallery in the Östermalm quarter, the artistic center of Stockholm. Jovan is a painter, poet, novelist, playwright, director, actor, drama coach, and brilliant violinist; he loves all these disciplines like a father loves his children. As a seven year old prodigy he received his first training from renowned Yugoslav artist Ivan Pototchniak. At age thirteen Jovan began to get commissions to paint portraits and became able to help support his family after the Nazi occupation. Coming to the USA (1971) Jovan’s first art exhibit was at the Kyoto Gallery in Chicago (1972). This American city became his home, and is the place where he continues his spiritual and artistic journey.
