Goce Kalajdziski has been creating and exhibiting in Slovenia for almost 40 years. Slovenia has become his second home, but his roots are, however, still in the South in Macedonia, where he had developed as a person and as an artist. Most of his inspirations concerning themes and forms, that we see in his paintings originate in Macedonia. His painting is roughly divided into six units.
First, there are waterpaintings , which serve as a withdrawal to intimacy, for creative rest, and at the same time for gathering new energies.
The second important unit, are his icons, which are the painter's spiritual connection to his fatherland and Macedonia religious tradition. His icons bear, however, only formal connection to the traditional art, for within the strict and prescribed from Goce Kalajdziski found enough space to express his feelings. The form of an icon presents a challenge, a task, and is at the same time a place of freedom, wh
ere the author can express himself. A special attention needs to be drawn on the unusual bearers of the icons. He paints them on the bed sides, wardrobe doors, baker's peels, thus becoming more secular. The saints step down from heaven and become part of everyday world and life. Life itself becomes a ritual and ritual becomes part of life.
The third unit of Kalajdziski paintings are motivs with Macedonian ornaments . The painter selectively and autonomously includes the elements of Macedonian traditional craft in his painting.
The forth unit are geometrical paintings. According to the art critic Drago Medved, the painter geometrically visualizes his imagination.

In the fifth unit, named structures by the painter himself, new elements are given to the already stiking colours. Besides the basic painting material and rich colours, the painter started to use natural ready made elements for making a structure. When making a painting the painter includes soil, sand, stones, shells, and particles of wood into a composition. The paintings are an organic compilation of natural elements and the author's tendency towards artistic order and transparency.
