Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, my passion for circus culture and circus advertisement has been a part of my life since early childhood. It was mid 1970’s when I became fascinated with the colourful visuals of magically drawn animals, clowns and performers covering city walls and store windows. Around the age 4, I remember noticing posters on street light posts and observing every detail on them. Some of the very first images that left a lasting impression on me were those from Circo Medrano, Circo Americano and Moira Orfei, hence triggering my desire for poster collection. I was fortunate my parents would take me to the circuses that came to town. They would also bring me posters from the store windows, which got me to start collecting from a very young age.
Three of the very first motifs that triggered my passion for poster collection.
