I was born in 1947. at 5 o'clock, one beautiful winter morning in Podravina. After a strict IV. Gymnasiums and the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, I specialize in graphics at the Rietveld Academy (1971/72) in Amsterdam and I am forever in love with Flemish painting. My Podravina, Austrian-Secession and East-Byzantine roots were sharply honed by my education at the Zagreb Academy of Fine Arts and later trips to Greece, Egypt, the USA and Europe. I take a deep breath of the air of Western Europe and first cautiously, and then more and more confidently knock on the doors of its galleries. So far, I have exhibited in 123 solo exhibitions around the world, and my works can be found in all major metropolises.
Mateja Kovač (37) is an academic painter and illustrator with a master’s degree from the School of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. After her studies, she discovered the advantages of digital tools and working in Photoshop, finding it to be a perfect medium for expressing her sensibility. As her beginnings in illustration were independent from publishing or graphic design, it allowed her to develop illustrations in a specific style as independent art products.
I have been drawing and writing since I was a child. After graduating in visual communications from the Design Studio in Zagreb, I work in graphic design in tandem of klaja & zita and my own art projects that include solo and group exhibitions of illustrations, occasional trips to animation, writing short stories and designing smaller sculptures.

Today is a good day to write about yourself. in fact every day is different to write about yourself. so everything changes, and yet somehow it stays the same. the same are my impulses and urges, perhaps now only a little purer, deeper. motivation is also there, it’s easy. passion has always been present. intensifies. ends. move. it is nice. and I strive to be a nice man. sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don’t. but I am actively trying. photography helps me greatly, as if it reveals me gradually and thoroughly. and then we both relish it. that spark that comes every time I am ready to receive a gift. thank you for yourself in you through us.
