Vladimir Veličković, Painter, Serbian And French Academic:

Consistent To One’s Convictions

I am neither capable of being a Frenchman nor would I want to be one. I am deeply rooted as a Yugoslav and I will remain that way until the end of my life. I also have deep roots as a Belgrader, which implies that I am also a Serb. When someone asks me how I feel in terms of whom I belong to, I always give the same answer: I’m a Yugoslav painter who lives and works in France, whether someone likes that or not!
