Sholim (Milos Rajkovic born 1985, Belgrade) is a visual artist and animator who create video loops of several seconds in which human faces and landscapes transform in strange ways. His work is published on social media, and the fantastic world of his creations, which he describes as “digital surrealism” has received high acclaim. Sholim has a strong belief in the artistic potential of the social media platform, which can be played on any mobile device around the world, and draws his inspiration from the overflowing creativity, capacity to disseminate information, and even stupidity, of the internet. The artist applies his own keen humor to a satirical look at various socio-political topics, such as religion, corporate culture, global economics, and mankind’s reliance on technology.
