@milkformycoconut is the name of the Ig account of Mateja Petkovic, pioneer of digital art and master of oil painting on canvas. Originally from Serbia, he now lives and works in Munich, a city from which all his works come to life and emigrate online to all parts of the world.
Digital art, born in the 50s, is now extremely widespread among many artists thanks to the progress of technologies that immediately recreate more complex painting techniques.
Also for this reason Coconut, although he continues to make oil paintings, over the years has defined his style with extremely distinctive and unique features.
The color has an evocative and emotional value for him, extremely important because thanks to tonalism technique, he’s alble to obtain effects of light, shadows, depth and give his works an extremely subversive tone.
He deals openly with issues related to sexuality and almost to the limit of pornography, others also deal with extremely topical issues such as drug addiction and abuse. In each of his works we find the most degraded aspect of everyday life but he reserves for his subjects sweetness and innocence, expressed almost exclusively in the portraits.
