By opinion of Danka Damjanović, Oste Erceg could be called like original artist of our country. “Without his painter's fraternity, isolated, lonely, relied on familial memories, Oste Erceg occupied himself with painting from 1967.”
He found inspiration all around of him, in his sensibility, political, moral, religious and war's problems.
Some of the famous works of his 30 years' long opus are:
« Cherry « ( 1980 )
« Portrait of Stojan Ćelić « ( 1987 )
« In honor of 67 perished soldiers on Orlovo gnijezdo « ( 1993 )
« Dawn in Rakani « (1998), etc.
He lives and works in Novi Grad.
