If we look in biography of Mladen Lazarevic we could see that there is always a lot of surprises pointing to the research relation towards artistic importance. By simplifying and concretizing on a canvas, whether it combines colors and words or only coloristic combinations, it establishes contact with the observer and retracts it practically in the story of identity and memory, which in this way problematizes.
