Belgrade, Serbia artist Milan Nenezic (born 1983): Colors that literally glow. Poignant and incredibly intimate studies of people that are both refined and carefully rendered, juxtaposed with expressionistic and violently painterly works, reminiscent of some kind of Lucien Freud merged with Francis Bacon…like the self-portrait at the end of these paintings. Do check this artist out.
