Marta Martina Mijic: I was born in Travnik, a small town located 90 km west from Sarajevo, and I spent my childhood interchangeably in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, as well, Germany. Since 2007, I am based in Zagreb where I founded an association, MAF that affects many art fronts. Photography (MAFphoto), painting, and creation of unique organ decorations are some of the things that I am involved with.
My first independent painting exhibition, symbolically named “My Story” was in Travnik (Bosnia and Herzegovina) 2005. I presented 66 paintings done in various techniques. I also participated in numerous group exhibitions, courses, and workshops.
“As an artist, I am oriented towards abstract art. The artist world is full of color, but my photography shows the opposite, the black and white world”
