Ilija Šoškić was born in 1935 in Dečani, Kingdom of Yugoslavia and was raised in Montenegro. He graduated from the High School of Art in Herceg Novi. Before turning to art, Šoškić was an athlete. He is the Montenegro record holder in hammer throw with 57.89m throw set on 25 June 1962.[1] He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade (capital of Yugoslavia), where he took part in the 1968 student demonstrations. Because of this and his radical leftist ideas, Šoškić was in conflict with the Yugoslavian communist authorities, so he left Yugoslavia in 1969 and settled in Bologna, Italy. In 1972, he moved to Rome where he has lived ever since.
