Ambassador of France to Serbia, H.E. Jean-Louis Falconi on behalf of the French Minister of Culture awarded the Order of Arts and Literature in the rank of the knight to Jana Adamovic, comic book author, Milan Manic, contemporary circus artist and Aleksandra Petkovic TKV, street artists.
The event was held on 9 October 2019 at the residence of France.
The honours are celebrating careers that have already gained their full momentum and achieved their highest results. However, sometimes awards are given as a stimulus to youth, to support its ambition and innovative spirit, an essential element for changing our worldview.
The three young artists French Embassy honoured this year have confirmed their talent in the new Serbian art scene, in the wake of French-Serbian friendship and cooperation. They have ventured boldly into their creative work that is still struggling for recognition against mainstream culture.
The decision to award these decorations is in line with the visit of the President of the Republic of France, Emanuel Macron, to Serbia, who expressed a wish for the strengthening of the cultural cooperation between Serbia and France with youth in focus.
