We are proud to showcase the work of Jasmina Krajačić, a very exciting artist from Zagreb, Croatia.
Jasmina Krajačićwas born in Zagreb. After studying the painting course at the Applied Arts School in Zagreb, she enrolled into the Zagreb Academy of Fine Arts, and in 1992 took her degree in printmaking, under the class of Miroslav Šutej.
Jasmina is a freelance painter and lives and works in Zagreb. She is a member of the professional associations HDLU and HZSU.
Jasmina has released various series of art.
THE MY WAY SERIES
Is punk still alive?
Jasmina has created artworks of members of three bands which she lists herself used to be music idols whose creations she eagerly awaited and then endlessly listened to. Thick applications of paint create a slight relief like quality but also remind us of their lighter side.
THE IMMORTALS SERIES
Several years ago Jasmina Krajačićbegan a new art phase, which could best be determined in terms of genre as a sort of digital neo pop art – she used the photographs of icons from her youth to make portraits of punk’s holy trinity: the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and the Clash, partially using digital redesign when sketching.
The photographs taken as templates are almost fractally broken into smaller, rectangular fragments while ensuring that this geometrical multiplication doesn’t distort the recognizable features of the ones portrayed.
THE LOVEWINS SERIES
This is Jasmina’s latest series and was exhibited last month in Zagreb. The series creates portraits of people belonging to various nationalities, races and sexual orientations – heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual – who share a romantic belief in the old phrase about the all-prevailing power of love.
The works are 50 cm x 50 cm and multi layered using print on glass which is set 4 cm in front of the canvass using deep frames . Giving an effective level of depth and space.
