Ivo is originally from Bosnia and from his earliest years has been passionate about art. While completing a teaching degree in Art and Technology in Adelaide Ivo studied photography and sculpture. On a posting to Mount Gambier was surprised that no one in the region was using Limestone for sculpture. After finding a block of limestone in the backyard the journey began for both Ivo and the region.
25 years later, the region is adorned with many large scale public artworks. Ivo’s work reflects his deep connection to his materials, his community and the environment of the Limestone Coast Region.
