Paintings of Vojo Stanic merge real and unreal world, with an emphasis on fantasticality. Within it, he merges the traditions of surreal painting on the trail of Magritte and de Chirico, the art of old art masters and the tradition of civic art. With a highly expressed understanding for human weaknesses and with a sharp observation of artist with Mediterranean spirit,  Vojo Stanic paints an ordinary peoples lives and their everyday life stories, which he notices through his attic atelier window in Herceg Novi.
