My mother told me that I was closer to 6 kilograms than 5 and a half when she gave birth to me in 1947 in our family house in Vela Luka on the island of Korcula, Dalmatia.

In 1957 I met my cousin, a painter, Petar Omcikus, who arrived from Paris and at that time he began to build his atelier in Vela Luka.  Petar and his wife put me aboard a boat called Art.

I went to school in Split for applied art. Later I received a diploma from the Academy of Fine Art of Belgrade.

When I finished the Academy they told me ‘you are a sculptor and you are free.’

I’ve had personal exhibitions and group exhibitions and I’ve gotten recognition and awards and have participated in many sculptural symposiums and I’ve been an initiator and organizer of several symposiums.

I’ve accomplished several big projects/sculptures in stone, marble, granite, stainless steel, wood, steel, bronze, mosaic in Former Yugoslavia, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg, USA, Mexico, Canada, Japan, Thailand, India and…

I’m still on the same boat and very often I’m in my bay, Poplat Planeta.
