Nebojša Despotović è nato a Belgrado (SRB) nel 1982. Vive e lavora tra Berlino e Treviso.

Nel 2006 ha ottenuto la laurea in pittura all'Accademia delle Belle Arti di Venezia. Nel 2011 ha partecipato alla prestigiosa residenza alla Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa ed è stato selezionato per la 54a Biennale di Venezia a rappresentare le Accademie Italiane all'Arsenale.
Ha ricevuto numerosi riconoscimenti e premi. Nel 2012 ha vinto il Premio Euromobil Under 30 ad ArteFiera di Bologna e il premio Mango Young Artist Award alla fiera Swab di Barcellona. Nel 2013 ha vinto il Premio Celeste per la sezione sperimentale Raw Zone alla fiera ArtVerona. Nel 2015 ha vinto il premio speciale Art Prize ad ArteFiera di Bologna e nel 2016 il premio Rotary Prize ad ArtVerona.
Ha partecipato a numerose mostre in spazi pubblici e privati. A febbraio 2014 ha avuto la sua seconda mostra personale a Boccanera Gallery di Trento, intitolata Silent Fracture, curata da Maja Cirić. A maggio 2014 è stato ospite al Museo di Capodimonte di Napoli per il talk con l'artista intitolato Still life of Nebojša Despotović curato da Angela Tecce (direttore del Museo di Castel Sant'Elmo) e Eugenio Viola (curatore al Perth institute of contemporary arts in Australia). Nel 2015 la Fondazione Treviso Ricerca Arte ha ospitato la doppia personale di Nebojša Despotović con Enzo Cucchi dal titolo La pelle del serpente. Nel 2016 ha partecipato alla mostra collettiva This is Today (PiranTown Gallery, Slovenia) dedicata agli artisti degli ultimi 10 anni dell'Accademia di Venezia. Nel 2017 ha esposto alla Galleria Monitor di Roma con la Fondazione Malutta. A maggio 2017 la prima mostra personale di Nebojša Despotović a Mosca da Triangle Gallery e a settembre 2017 la sua prima personale a New York da Ierimonti Gallery. Nel 2018 Nebojša Despotović ha inaugurato la sua terza personale a Boccanera Gallery a Trento e a Milano.

Nebojša Despotović attinge a piene mani dal patrimonio iconografico collettivo e personale recuperando vecchie fotografie e immagini, ritagli di giornali, libri, manuali e riviste, dalle quali l’artista parte per costruire le proprie opere pittoriche. La ricerca di Despotović, attenta alla definizione e alla rappresentazione del concetto di identità, sottrae solo apparentemente le immagini all’oblio del tempo: ricoperte ealterate con la pittura esse acquisiscono un carattere indefinito e inattuale che le riconduce, infatti, ad un tempo remoto.

Nebojša Despotović was born in Belgrade, Serbia, in 1982. He lives and works between Berlin and Treviso, Italy.

In 2006 he achieved a bachelor degree in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice. In 2011 he won the residence at the prestigious Bevilacqua La Masa Italian Foundation and has been selected at the 54th Venice Biennial to represent the Italian Art Academies in the Arsenal section.
He received many eulogies and prizes. In 2012 he won the Euromobil Under 30 Prize at ArteFiera in Bologna Fair, Italy, and the Mango Young Artist Award of Swab in Barcelona Fair. In 2013 he won the Collectors for Celeste Prize for the Raw Zone, experimental area of ArtVerona Fair, Italy. In 2015 he won the Special Prize-Art Prize in ArteFiera in Bologna and in 2016 the Rotari Prize at ArtVerona.
His exhibition are countless in many public and private spaces. In February 2014 he had his second solo show Silent Fracture at Boccanera Gallery in Trento, curated by Maja Cirić. In May 2014 the Capodimonte Museum of Naples hosted the talk with artist entitled Still life of Nebojša Despotović curated by Angela Tecce and Eugenio Viola. In 2015 Treviso Ricerca Arte Foundation hosted the double solo show of Nebojša Despotović with Enzo Cucchi entitled La pelle di Serpente. In 2016 he exhibits in the group show This is Today (Piran Town Gallery, Slovenia) devoted to artists of the last decade of the Academy of Venice. In 2017 he exhibits in Rome by Monitor Gallery with Malutta Foundation. In May 2017 Nebojša had the first solo show in Mosca by Triangle Gallery and in September 2017 the first solo show in New York NY by Ierimonti Gallery. In March 2018 he had the third solo exhibition, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea ovvero freie Kartoffeln at Boccanera Gallery in Trento and Milan.

Nebojša Despotović thoroughly exploits the collective and personal iconograhic heritage recycling old photographs and images, newspapers, books, handbooks and magazines, which are the starting point for the artist to create his pantings. Despotović’s research, which pays particular attention to the definition and representation of the concept of identity, only apparently saves these images from the oblivion of time: covered and altered with painting they acquire an indefinite and outdated character which takes them back to a remote past.
