Dimitrije Martinovic was born in Yugoslavia, and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1968. Between 1976 – 80 he attended the Ontario College of Art with a focus on experimental film and video production. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and a number of his videos are in the permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in NYC, and the National Gallery, in Ottawa. By the late 1980s Dimitrije had abandoned video altogether and began painting, drawing, and making sculptural objects for the next ten years. With the advent and higher accessibility of digital photography of the last decade, Dimitrije Martinovic’s interests shifted to photography. A series of large photographic panels exhibited at Manif d’Art 4, Quebec City Biennale (2008), utilized cutting-edge electroluminescent technology in their presentation. Presently Dimitrije Martinovic is undertaking graduate studies at York University in Visual Culture.
