The talented Krtolica picked up a pencil and began drawing when he was just two years-old. When most toddlers were just learning to master the art of walking, Krtolica was starting his foray into life as an extremely talented illustrator. By the time the young artist was eight years-old, he had already held two solo exhibitions of his work in Serbia, and has been featured in a third exhibit since.

Now eleven years-old, Krtolica has continued perfecting his style, preferring to draw animal life from undersea creatures, insects and birds to animals of the past like dinosaurs and other extinct animals. His penchant for studying geological eras and the animals that inhabited them is evident in his tableaus, which are arranged with creatures from specific chronologies.

Krtolica is as voracious about knowledge as he is about drawing, having devoured a set of encyclopedias on animals in just three weeks. His future plans are to draw each of the animals he learned about in his studies.
