Nikola Kitanovic was born on February 21st, 1956 in
Kikinda, a little town in the north of Serbia. [ Beleska o
piscu Nikoli Kitanovicu, u Pogovoru knjizi "NN Lice", Novi Sad, 2007
He finished the primary school in Telep, a poor suburb of Novi
Sad. After having finished the secondary chemical school with
excellent marks, he graduated at the advanced school of economics
and commercialism in Novi Sad. He then enrolled at the Faculty of
Philosophy, the department of Serbian literature, Novi Sad,
where he was nominated by the faculty for the "Branko award of
Matica Srpska" which was subsequently awarded to him. [ Ibid
Kitanovic wrote his first poem when he was eight years old. He
presented it to his schoolteacher who was so enthusiastic about it
that she had to send it to a Radio Belgrade show "Good Morning,
Kids". The poem was awarded and would later often be read in the
show. Since then Kitanovic has been constantly writing poetry.
Selimir Radulovic, a Serbian writer and literary critic claims that
"Poetry is Nikola’s life". Kitanovic published his poems on regular
basis in magazines throughout the former Yugoslavia. [ Selimir
Radulovic "O Pesnistvu Nikole Kitanovica" u predgovor knjizi "Zver",
Novi Sad, 2006 ]
During his high school years, Nikola became increasingly
interested in mysticism, not only European but Asian as well. During
his studies, having lived in a totalitarian communist regime, he
came under severe criticism by the ruling government, because,
fighting for his cause, he was trying to conjure up the intangible,
the different. For a period of time he was not even allowed to
publish his poetry and ideas. It caused no harm, though, since, with
his friends’ help, he spent that time traveling through Europe,
Canada, USA, Asia and Australia, teaching courses and seminars on
European mysticism. With the fall of the communist regime, Nikola
held public speeches at the anti-war protests in Novi Sad and
Belgrade, which once more turned him into a target for the new
socialist regime which twice attempted his assassination. [ Ibid
He has also written prose, essays and critiques about literature,
art, aesthetic, movie, mythology, mysticism, sociology etc. For a period of
time he was also interested in painting, but due to ‘the lack of
time’, he had to give it up. However, when he came in touch with the
endless possibilities of computer graphic design, he devoted his
whole being to it. Some of his works (such as "Pray of Seraphim")
are extremely popular on the Internet. [Gordana Djilas "Selektivna
