”Visually infinitely small and sound of another dimension,
Daves’ proposal of the artist can not help but seize the heart hostage and touch the psychic fiber of the observer.” - DR.HG
Dave Mutnjakovic was born on the immaterial border that separates Canada from the United States,
between the cities of Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan. He is the son of a refugee from Eastern Europe and an Irish poet.
This Frankensteinienne mix engendered a definitively original outsider.
At age 13, Dave develops a chronic disease that burns his intestines and makes him travel to the end of life.
A few years later, it's the recession that decimates the city of his childhood. Thus, he went away: uncertain traveler, taking new paths.
It is at the end of the world, in Tasmania, that he finally reaches his limit and decides to return to the source. From that defining moment to today, Dave creates with a frenzy close to personal therapy. Since then, he has accumulated more than 3,000 drawings, writings and visual animations. Which uniquely illustrate his personal, physical and mystical journey. In parallel with his creative process, he specializes in the development of artistic projects with at-risk youth and people overcoming physical and mental health problems.
