Milos Rajkovic aka Sholim

"One Minute Portraits" project by Serbian artist Milos "Sholim" Rajkovic is one-upped level of his well accepted series of GIFs, as his work has been cleaned, polished, and enhanced with an audio element. Sholim creates animated portraits of anonymous archetypes with deconstructed heads and symbolic components that operate like finely tuned machines. Everything is fair game: a religious figure with alter, candles, and a rotating luxury car; U.S. military figures with weight-lifting Ronald McDonald, skeletons, praying hands, and a flat screen TV playing 24-hour cable news. His artwork has a cult following on web, owing to his strange and unmistakable style.

Biography

Born in Belgrade in 1985.
The work of Serbian artist, Milos "Sholim" Rajkovic, was once described as "Freaky GIFs You Will Never Forget,". His work looks like a mad scientist's twist on Magritte's The Son Of Man, as politicians, corporate workaholics, and models from your average infomercial get their faces removed and replaced with a spotlight on their inner gears and levers. He has found a unique way to express his anti-war and anti-corrupt corporation/government/religion sentiments: with a new artistic form animated GIFs.

Quote

"Milos Rajkovic, a.k.a. Sholim, whose GIFs feel like a Max Ernst collage crossed with one of Terry Gilliam's animations from Monty Python's Flying Circus.---Sholim loves to open people's skulls to reveal contraptions as complicated as any Rube Goldberg ca
