The second quarter of the program content of the National Gallery for 2024, supported by the Ministry of Culture, brings to the stage the retrospective exhibition of Dragan Vergovski-Alpi, consultant conservator, contemporary of Borko Lazeski and Dimitar Kondovski. The opening is on May 23, 2024 (Thursday) in the gallery space of Cifte Hamam, at 20 p.m. The exhibition will be on display for one month and will last until June 23, 2024.

Dragan Vergovski-Alpi, born in 1950 in Belgrade, is a prominent conservation consultant whose artistic journey has been deeply shaped by his mentors and by the various styles of modern art. His school and student years are marked by a rich educational experience, starting from the Secondary Art School in Skopje, under the direction of Professor Dimo ​​Todorovski. Here Vergovski perfected his artistic skills and developed a deep insight into the complexity of artistic expression.

Continuing his art education, Vergovski enrolled at the Pedagogical Academy. Under the mentorship of Professor Borko Lazeski, he delved into the theoretical foundations of art, exploring the concepts of form, color and composition, which would later significantly influence his artistic activity.

Vergovski's artistic vision with previous experiences and educational years really blossomed during his studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje, under the direction of Professor Dimitar Kondovski. Kondovski's mentorship not only provided technical expertise, but also instilled in Vergovski a deep sense of artistic integrity and innovation.

He delves into the various styles of modern art, including Impressionism, Expressionism, Surrealism, Enformal, Geometric Abstraction and so on. Each of those styles contributes unique elements to his evolving artistic identity.

Beginning his artistic journey, Vergovski is a prolific exhibitor, showing his art independently since 1968 with a major exhibition at the New Belgrade Youth Action. His exhibitions, both nationally and internationally, have garnered accolades highlighting his versatility and mastery of various artistic genres.

In addition to contributing to the world of art through exhibitions, Vergovski also contributes to the preservation of Macedonia's cultural heritage. With over 40 years of experience as a consultant conservator for mosaics at the Conservation Center in Skopje, he played a key role in the protection and preservation of Macedonia's rich artistic heritage.

In his work, Dragan Vergovski includes several -isms, i.e. different artistic directions from modern and postmodern fine art and their eclectic connection, while he does not stick strictly to a certain direction, but integrates more of them in the performance of one work.

The division of several artistic cycles can be traced more through the thematic units than through the modernist artistic styles, which are not arranged in chronological order, but depending on the personal feeling permeate his entire creation, the National Gallery pointed out.
