About Zarko

Zarko Baseski received his BFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje in 1988 and his MA ten years later. Since then, he has worked there. In 2010 he was appointed a Professor on the Sculpture Department.

For him, the most difficult thing to determine and represent with accuracy is the deepest self. In his self-portrait, Baseski portrays himself in a moment of psychological stress, uncertainty and anticipation.

His work has been exhibited since he first began his studies in 1984, in galleries and museums, across Macedonia but also in New York.
