He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 2011, majoring in Painting. After that, he enrolled at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris (ENSBA), where he obtained his Master’s degree in 2015.
During his four years of study in France, he dedicatedly worked on conquering his own creative method that aims to form an authentic artistic/visual expression. He started exhibiting his large-format abstract paintings with traditional carpet motifs in Paris and continued in Serbia after completing his studies. He continued applying the contemporary creative methodology in the painting studio in Belgrade, while novelties in his expression when it comes to iconography can be noticed in the period between 2016 and 2018 at solo exhibitions in Serbia. Pavle moved from geometric abstractions with national motifs abstracted from Pirot carpets to more intimate poetics of abstraction, where the expression of personal content happens through intuitively sensed forms. In 2017, he became a member of the newly formed Association of Fine Artists of Užice and made a personal contribution to the formation of the “Reflektor” Gallery in the same city. In 2018, he moved to Basel and already during the first months of his stay in Switzerland, he got the exceptional opportunity to be a guest at the TOKAS artist residency in Tokyo. During 2018 and 2019, he collaborated several times with the French Institute and the Goethe Institute in Belgrade: “Carnets de voyage” (a project that combines art, culture and pedagogical work – French Institute), DACIDA “Light bulb” (exhibitor at a workshop – Institute “Goethe”), “Form and Abandon” (exhibition of a short, artistic film of which he was an author, shot on Kadinjača as a project of cooperation with Munich and Serbian artists, actors and technicians – Institute “Goethe”). From 2018 to 2020, he intensively created and exhibited his art, improved his skills, and studied the German language in Switzerland.
In 2020, he returned to Serbia from Switzerland. He got a job at the Art School in Užice as a drawing and painting teacher and enrolled at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts to get his PhD. In October of the same year, he organized a retrospective at the “Reflektor” Gallery, which was created as an amalgam of life, studying and creating in different countries, frequent travels, and getting to know different traditions, cultures and contemporary visual tendencies. Pavle Jovović has so far had twelve solo exhibitions, as well as numerous group exhibitions. He studied at different institutions for nine years, researched professional, academic literature in three world languages and lived in France and Switzerland, where he created and participated in cultural and artistic projects. He exhibited in Užice, Niš, Novi Sad, Pančevo, Belgrade, Munich, Paris, Basel, Addis Ababa, Cairo and Tokyo.
Today, he is teaching the subject of Drawing at the Information Technology School – ITS and is a third-year PhD student in the Visual Arts study program at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts.
