Milan Besarabić (1908-2011) was a Serbian sculptor and painter.[1]


Milan Besarabić was born on 16 April 1908, in Čačak, where his Russian officer father was stationed at the time. Later, the family moved to Belgrade and Milan graduated from the Third Belgrade Gymnasium. He also graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Belgrade in 1932. Law, however, was not to his liking and then he decided to study sculpture and painting at the School of Fine Arts in Belgrade. Upon graduation, he worked as a professor of drawing in Knjaževac. From Knjaževac he moved back to Belgrade where worked as a professor in several high schools before being transferred to ex officio for the director of the Art School in Peć. From Peć, he went to Zemun, then in Rakovica, where his monument dedicated to Nikola Tesla was erected, then he taught at the "Đuro Salaj" School for a while before assuming a post at the Third Belgrade Gymnasium from where he retired.[2][3]

When he came to Belgrade from Peć, his good friend, sculptor and painter Stevan Bodnarov helped him settle in Zemun, a then to get an atelier at the Red Cross building during the war, which was until then used by Bogdan Bogdan Bogdanović. In his studio, Milan collaborated with Bogdan Bogdanović and Jovan Bijelić.

Milan Besarabić actively worked on sculptures, paintings, drawings, and wrote poetry and prose while planning new art exhibitions[4]and book promotions. [5]

He was a member of ULUS since 1938 and participated in many group and solo exhibitions in the country and abroad. He was a recipient of numerous national and international awards, among which stand out -- award "Hedgehog", high awards at international exhibitions in Italy, Canada and Bulgaria and the first prize on the 16th International Biennial of Bright Arts in Tolentino, Italy, in 1991. His last participation in the international cultural scene is associated with exhibitions in Mexico and Brazil in 2000.
