Ana Milenković

Born in Belgrade in 1988.

Immediately after her studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade, she receives the award for special creative innovations from the Miloš Bajić fund in 2012.

In search of the challenges and seeking to explore the global art scene, her journey to London seems a natural choice. In London Ana begins her master’s studies in art at the University of the Arts London, Wimbledon College of Arts. Soon after, she is noticed in London where she has presented her work in two solo exhibitions so far, and received the Clifford Chance Sculpture Award (2015) and the Griffin Art Prize (2016), given to emerging young artists as an incentive and support in their future work. Today, Ana lives and works in London.
