Lazar Stojić is a visual artist whose practice is centered around the investigation of value and power. His deceptively simple artworks succeed in exploring the complexity of value and power representations, while challenging ideas about the inner workings of economic structures. Lazar’s artworks evoke the thoughts of value and economic success, status symbols and elegance, leading to the questions of freedom and independence. By elevating objects from their everyday purpose to a precious exhibit, he reverses their value, aesthetics, and role as a signifier of quality, giving them an alternative narrative. While integrating design into his work and restaging the objects, Lazar reflects on the ephemeral nature of design and luxury products while relating them to the heritage of art and culture.

Born in 1998 in Belgrade, Serbia, he graduated in 2021 under the tutelage of Professors Mrdjan Bajić and Rados Antonijević at the sculpture department of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. He is currently engaged in master studies with Professor Martin Boyce at the sculpture department of the Faculty of Fine Arts HFBK in Hamburg, Germany.

Lazar lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.
