This 16-Year-Old Boy Knew He Wanted To Be An Artist Since He Was Just 2 Years Old

Published 5 years ago

Dušan Krtolica is a 16-year-old artist from Serbia who creates intricate pencil drawings of both real and mythical animals. Even though the artist is still young, he has plenty of experience under his belt – more specifically, 14 years of it.

The artist started drawing when he was just 2 years old and says it is his greatest passion. He finds inspiration in nature and is fascinated by animals and their diversity as well as their ability to adapt to different environments. Throughout his career as an artist, Dušan already had 6 solo exhibitions, participated in TV shows and even written and published an encyclopedia of the prehistoric world when he was just thirteen.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
