About

Selfportrait

 

 “Kalcev belongs to the artistic trends of the post modernist period, although he is neither burdened by some of their aggressively stated demands nor tempted by nonchalant nomadism. On the contrary, he is a painter who has chosen to develop his own method of building the painting, showing consistency in the composition of its unique plastic and semantic structure and allowing no one-sided interpretations. At the same time, the cultivated thinking process makes it possible for the painter’s procedure to be on par with the idea: everything is lege artis – both the thought and it’s realization.”

——    “V.Velichkovski”  ( Excerpt from the monograph “KALCEV” )

 

Danco Kalcev is part of the younger generation of Macedonian painters who come from the Skopje Academy of Fine Art, founded in 1980.

Kalcev lives and works in the south of Macedonia, in the town of Gevgelija.
