Milenko Prvacki



Milenko Prvacki (b. 1951, Yugoslavia–) began his artistic career in his native country, the former Yugoslavia, and had established himself as an artist in Europe before moving to Singapore in 1991. The prolific artist has deeply enriched the local visual arts scene and has been widely consulted on various issues related to the arts in Singapore. Milenko is also one of Singapore’s foremost art educators.1 For his contributions to the local art scene, Prvacki was conferred the Cultural Medallion for Visual Arts in 2012.2

Early years
Prvacki was born in a village in Ferdin in the former Yugoslavia, the only child of an accountant and a housewife. He received his art education at the Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest, Romania. It was at the institute that Prvacki met his Romanian-born wife Delia, who was also a student there.3

Migration to Singapore4
Prvacki moved to Singapore in 1991 on the invitation of a German design company to build up the now-defunct Singapore Maritime Museum. There were only two commercial galleries and one museum when he first arrived. In 1993, a little over a year after his arrival, Prvacki held a joint exhibition with his wife Delia at the Lasalle College of the Arts.5 Soon after holding the exhibition, Prvacki was invited by Lasalle’s founder, the late Brother Joseph McNally, to teach full-time as a senior lecturer at the college.

It was an invitation Prvacki received with enthusiasm for several reasons. He looked forward to the possibility of working with McNally and the College. Moreover, he found Singapore a hospitable country, a welcome relief from his life in Serbia where a terrible civil war was beginning to break out. It was to be a prolonged war with devastating loss of human lives.

Prvacki was subsequently appointed the Dean of Fine Arts at Lasalle. His initial two-month contract became a two-year contract and, eventually, a permanent move of more than 20 years for him and his family. Prvacki and his wife became Singapore citizens in 2002.

Artistic development

Before his move to Singapore, Prvacki had already established himself as a postmodern painter and sculptor in his native country, the former Yugoslavia. Since 1971, he had won many awards and exhibited his works extensively across Europe.6

After he arrived in Singapore, Prvacki continued to hold numerous solo and group showcases in public spaces and galleries in Singapore and across Asia.7 His paintings, which explore ideas of dislocation and displacement, reflect his flight from his native country, the former Yugoslavia, as a result of war.8

Prvacki has also participated in numerous symposiums, art workshops, talks and discussions worldwide. His works can be found in the permanent collections of many museums, including the Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, Serbia; the Singapore Art Museum, Singapore; and the Museum of Contemporary Drawing, Nuremberg, Germany.9

Arts educator10
Prvacki is one of Singapore’s foremost art educators. He was the Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Lasalle from 1994 to 2010 and has served as Senior Fellow in the Office of the President at Lasalle since 2011.

When Prvacki started teaching at Lasalle, he was shocked at the low standard of art education at the college. The curriculum consisted of teaching art without much thought on how to prepare students to be independent. To rectify this situation, he introduced individual tutorials and group critiques to his classes. The group critique sessions in particular proved challenging to local students as it was seen as a loss of face to have one’s work criticised. Prvacki also received complaints from some parents when he reduced teaching time to 14 hours a week in order to allow students more time to practise their art. Despite the complaints, Prvacki stood by in his educational approach as he believed that the arts programme was about giving students the room to explore, experiment and take risks with their work without the fear of failure.11


In 2005, Prvacki introduced the Tropical Lab programme to provide opportunities for Lasalle students to interact with student artists from around the world.

Prvacki’s forward-thinking teaching approaches have proven effective in influencing and nurturing many young Singaporean artists such as Jane Lee, Ruben Pang, Ye Shufang and Tan Wee Lit.12


Besides his teaching stints at Lasalle, Prvacki has also taught as a visiting professor at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Japan and Sabanchi University in Istanbul, Turkey. He has also participated in various art symposiums and workshops worldwide.

Contributions13

Prvacki has been consulted on various issues related to the arts in Singapore. He was engaged by the former Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA) [now the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI)] to serve on the Renaissance City Strategic Plan Strategic Planning panel, and by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to serve on the Marina Bay Advisory Committee. He also played an active role in creating an arts rehabilitation project for the Singapore Prisons.

Prvacki’s artistic output since his arrival in Singapore has deeply enriched the local visual arts scene. For example, Prvacki and his wife drew upon the rich cultural diversity and history of Singapore to create the mosaic murals at the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station as part of the Art in Transit programme.14
