Slobodan Trajković’s artwork combines and overlaps media such as installations, video, photography, sculpture, paintings and drawings.

His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, the Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the National Museum in Belgrade, Museum of Modern Art, Skopje, the Alternative Museum in New York, the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, the ISA in Singapore and many private galleries in the USA and Europe. He is the recipient of the First Award for Painting at the Yugoslav Biennale of Young Artists and First Award for Painting at the “October salon” Belgrade.
