Jasko Begovic uses art as expression, as a means to capture the ineffable, to explain, to understand, to accept, and to overcome. He is an artist whose life has been marked by boundaries, and yet his art is defined by the lack of them. Born in Bosnia, former Yugoslavia, in 1980, his childhood was divided when the war began in 1991. After a civilian exchange he escaped with his family to Croatia and later Germany, before immigrating to the United States. He moved from Kentucky to Tennessee to San Jose. However, it was not until Berkeley, when he was 20-years-old, that he began to produce original, provocative paintings. His art shows the inhumane violence that destroyed his family and homeland, and it has no rules, no exceptions, and no limits.
