The first homeless man on the Moon, Goran was born in Niš on September 9th 1984. By profession: a clerk, an economist, a storeman, a night guard and a radio presenter, he’s been occupying himself with photography for a long time. His poetry has been published in numerous literary journals throughout Serbia.
He’s been writing, travelling and performing since 2007. His poetry supports the concept of poetic performance without reading from a paper, accompanied by one or two musical instruments, as well as a projector and a movie screen that serves as a backdrop and visual support for him as the performer.
Together with Miljan Milanovic as co-author, in 2010, he edited a poetry collection “Tortu kroz prozor’’("Cake Through the Window"), a traveling circus for spreading poetry in places and institutions where there is no Facebook, just a microphone and a bookcase.
In 2012, published his first book “SPALIPAČITAJ”(‘’Burn-then-Read’’) which won Branko’s Award, for the best debut collection of poetry in Serbia. He also won Vojislav Despotov Award, Ulaznica 2014, and the Audience Award for the best slam poet in Serbia- in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
