Dalibor Popović Mikša (ŠA) was born in Zagreb in 1980.
At the beginning of the nineties, he replaced the streets of Purger with those of Prijedor. As a teenager, he founded the rock band “Tattoo” with his friends from Prijedor, with which he also won the top prize at one of the guitar competitions in Zaječar. His creativity and author’s work, his authentic voice, the music he produced on the guitar, and later on the saxophone, will remain forever recorded in the songs of the band “Tattoo”, as well as many other bands with which Mikša played. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Banja Luka, in the class of Professor Radomir Knežević, and his surreal watercolors found their way beyond the borders of our country, they live all over the world, decorating the walls and lives of those whose hearts this artist touched with his work. For the last few years, he lived and worked in Belgrade, where he died of a heart attack on October 13, 2017, at the age of 37.
