Born and raised in Sarajevo, Bosnia, I am a New York City based artist with a strong passion for ink and pencil drawings, digital art and street art. I enjoy obsessing over the detail, playing with the devil, blurring the lines of time and our perceived reality.
The experience of living trough a war at a young age permanently heightening my impressions of the world around me. It’s made me hyper-aware of the suffering of so many, but continuously in awe of the beauty, and magic of life. Some works are reflections of my months long ruminations, while others are barely just snippets of some passing emotion. And the growing collection of portraits is a nod of appreciation to the people whose way of thinking has inspired mine.
Using tribal and psychedelic motifs, these drawings seek to capture a single moment in the constant change of life. Inspiration for patterns and stems from ancient civilizations, such as that of Ancient Egypt. Societies which imaginatively celebrated the connection between the mankind and the cosmos. The use of intricate patterns and bold colors are inspired by the arts and architecture encountered during my travels through the Asian and South American countries.
My drawings have been exhibited at galleries in New York and California. I’ve had the pleasure of creating art for clients such as Adobe, Rip Curl, Winsor & Newton, and have had features in Huffington Post, Super Paper and INDIE magazine, among others. Having graduated with BFA in Graphic Design from NYIT, I continue to explore and experiment by taking silkscreen and painting classes at the School of Visual Arts, and painting murals when given an opportunity.
