Boz Droca is a representational artist working in the tradition of the great naturalist masters of the 19th century. By painting directly from nature Boz is trying to capture a realistic sense of light and space, but for him it is very important to evoke poetry in his artwork.
His father was a people artist and great draughtsman, so Boz has been drawing and painting from an early age. He knew that he would be an artist at the age of 5, when he saw beautiful icons and paintings in local 600 year-old church. After completing his education at the University of Sarajevo, Boz pursued a career as an illustrator and portrait artist. He exhibited his work across Europe (Italy, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, France and Turkey).
Over the years of his career Boz has combined innate creativity, academic training and the influence of great artists from his Balkan roots (M.Corovic, M.Berber, B.Aleksic, M.Popovic), as well as western masters (A.G.Lopez,C.Bravo,R.Kinstler), to shape his own artistic language.
After moving to Houston in 1999, Boz continued to work as a fine artist, but also became part of the Russell Erwin studio for murals and decorative art. He fell in love with Texas landscapes. He visited Big Bend and studied with masters Bill Zane and David Caton. The result was two sold out one man exhibitions: “Color of Remembrance “and “From Mediterranean to Texas”. He exhibited his work in “Gallery Central (Arkansas),”Gallerie Mado Chalvet”, Segovia and Boz Crown gallery (Houston, Texas).
Boz is also known for his unique teaching style based on his script “Power of observation”. He has tutored painting classes and given demonstration to various groups of students. Recently he has taught art at HCAA Houston. As a member of the Portrait society of America for sixteen years, Boz improved his portrait skills with great American masters Raymond Kinstler and Daniele Greene. Boz’s work has appeared in many magazines and publications in the US and Europe. Recently one of Boz’s paintings was included in the great art collection of HRH Crown Prince Alexander and HRH Princess Katarina of Serbia.
