view whole CV

Zarko Basheski, born 1957 in Prilep, is a Macedonian sculptor and professor on Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje.

The interest in his work is turned towards the human, hence the interest in hyperrealistic approach in shaping the concept of the work, which in the theoretical projection exceeds hyperrealism, talks about life and the world in which we live.

In his work there are several elements which are new to the world of sculpture and that make his latest work different: the concept, contemporary views of human condition through self observation, technical production and use of new materials (resin polyester, polymarble, silicone, natural hair), the hyper-realistic treatment, size of the work, the philosophical approach – all of which, when combined in one, offer a multilayered reading of the artwork.

Currently a member of National Board for Accreditation and Evaluation, Senate of UKIM and Inter- University conference. From 1999 to 2009 he was head of Department of Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts. His work has been presented at several international exhibitions. He has been the recipient of numerous awards. Much of his work is in private collections in the country and in foreign countries.
