This discovery influence the artist for many years.The English photographer muybridge published at the end of the nineteenth century 12 volumes chronophotographs devoted to various movements of humans and animals. Velickovic not only borrows its animal and human figures, but also the scientific framework (routes Alain avila). Particularly that inspiration is seen in the last sections of the book devoted precisely to the movement: Controls 1 and 2 - in motion animal growth - the human face in motion. The man and the animal are captured in this scientific background and subject like puppets at a frantic movement and deformation. \His figures, he forges the pen, and the paintings are an expression of the essence. \It is a complex design that results in a very careful study of photographs: I work as many of my colleagues with the photo as a crutch.
It has become a sort of bridge with the reality which is, for me, difficult to pick live with a sketchbook ... (Velickovic, Interview by Jean-Pierre Klein, April 2004). The artist puts himself forward this research project images in its entirety and documents used and is found on the cover of the book. You can see the work of muybridge pictures sides of deliveries that have served him for his series of births. This violence in the artist's works comes from his origins.
The body is reduced to its materiality, its animality. See and hear the war marked the young Velickovic and before his drawings and paintings \widespread violence, the man is only human, ie flesh to treat as meat. \Velickovic highlights life goes with the motion of bodies and the death and pervasive violence. This staging of the perpetual struggle between Eros and Thanatos is particularly sensitive in the representations of calving birth where death and life meet.
