Vjekoslav Nemesh is an international artist born in the former Yugoslavia and now living in New Zealand. From early childhood he manifested exceptional drawing skills and interest in drawing, especially comics. His artistic direction however was about to change when in his early twenties a schoolmate commissioned him to create a large oil painting, an event that ultimately led him onto an artistic path.
Having only been painting for a few years Nemesh was fortunate enough to win several local art awards which ultimately gave him the encouragement to pursue a career as an artist, a decision he has never looked back from.
Today his artistic career spans over 40 years since he first put his drawings and sketches into a local exhibition back in 1984 (in former Yugoslavia). Nemesh has participated in more than 300 group exhibitions in New Zealand and overseas and has had more than 50 solo exhibitions.
