About me

Location Slovenia
Introduction Born in 1980, Kranj. ----- I studied painting on the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Afterwards I questioned a concept of "traditional painting" and started writing my diploma entitled Social subject in kinetic object. What happens if a painting is no longer an independent, selfcontained position, bound by standstill, unalterability and light in site? When it's placed in the dark and seeks new compositions constantly? How to move forward with painting, how to alter it or make it anew - this was a question of formalism at first, combined with a sort of subversion. A technological, moving image resulted. The machine is its frame. A manipulation of image happens. In 2010, I finished the MFA degree in the international program "Public Art and New Artistic Strategies" at Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany, with thesis on Fire Painting. -----
