“Each Bengez’s painting is a story somewhere between dream, fantasy and reality and takes the painting’s opportunity to offer ‘simultaneity’ of vision, of sensations, of different places and times, of experiences and evocations, of confidence and desire. A privileged subject of his figuration accentuated in skilled rhythmic grounds of saturated and luminous colours is an urban utopia, a city as a dwelling place, a place to live in, a place for attentive listening and intensive feeling, of a community able to organize itself, inventing its own patterns of integration and cooperation, shaping itself in an infinity of different and supplementary situations, sometimes conflicting, but nevertheless, always tending to amalgamate at the time, in form, in different uses and manners, in habits and in colours…”
Giorgio Segato
“There is something middle – European and completely cosmopolitan in the paintings of Miljenko Bengez ; an imprint of styles without school labels or trademarks. His work contains all the dominant components of the 20th century masters Marc Chagall, Paul Klee and Vasily Kandinsky. The ingredients of Bengez’ paintings are not re-creations of the above-mentioned masters, but fresh, lyrical interpretations that are created from his insightful and expressive personality, as well as the results of his exotic, geographical travels. This painter creates profound imagery that are powerfully and precisely complete. The dynamics of the work are unique, courageous and virtually limitless in scope with a broad quintessential, cultural and historical characterization. This melange or mixture of style is impressive; luminous,and brilliant in color and replete with an extraordinary poignant poetic impact. His talent and his personality are reflections of seduction that renders the infinite question and permanently recalls a vision, a metaphor, “What is reality and what is fantasy?”
Giorgio Seveso
“Ovo svjesno odupiranje da podlegne svim mogucim danasnjim trendovima i da se tako ” utopi ” u masu umjetnika bez indetiteta i vlastita podrijetla, Bengezu priskrbljuje dodatnu kvalitativnu poziciju. Naime, njegova neposredna zestina i bujnost vlastitih dozivljaja i osjecaja, udruzena s vizualnom neponovljivoscu domovinskog podneblja, sasvim ga sigurno udomljuje na svim geografskim podrucjima kao izvornog i autenticnog predstavnika zemlje iz koje dolazi. S takvim prednostima svog duhovnog i likovnog razmisljanja slobodan je prepustiti se stvaralastvu koje ce nedvojbeno osvjeziti danasnje malajsale umjetnicke prostore, a gledateljima iznova vratiti optimisticku zivotnu vedrinu.”
