After receiving his B.A. in Painting and Scenography at the Faculty for Applied Arts, University of Arts in Belgrade, Serbia in 1984 Boban Dosic worked for TV Belgrade for several years. In 1987 he received British Council Grant and specialized in Visual Effects with the BBC TV. Following his moving to Toronto in 1988 he worked for the CBC TV and independent production companies as an Art Director, Set Designer and Scenic
Painter for nearly twenty years.
He continued his independent art career as a painter and became a member of Ontario Society of Artists in 2011.
As a painter he is inspired by archaeology, fresco paintings and urban decay, and the idea of both transience and timelessness. He is interested in the opposing forces of construction and deconstruction and the beauty of layers formed by the passage of time. Boban works in mixed media, using acrylics, sand, plaster, metal wire, wax and paper, as well as drawing with coloured pencils and crayons on canvas and panel.
