Danilo Stankovic was born in 1981 in Kalmar. He studied at the Malmö Art Academy. In his art practice, Stankovic is interested in the sublime and ecstatic in our existence. He is influenced by stories from mythology and folk belief and allows these to intersect with popular culture. Stankovic works with painting, but also with collage, video, readymades, and sculpture. His artistic arenas vary, and his artwork feels equally at home in the gallery as at music festivals. When Birds Fall Silent is his first site-specific painting in public space. Danilo Stankovic lives in Malmö.
