Tatjana Komso, who goes by the pseudonym "," was born in Bosnia in 1989. Throughout Tatjana's life, creativity has consistently played a central role, as she has devoted herself to various forms of expression in different stages. Her interests span from drawing, fashion design, and architecture to crafts, photography, and her current passion for abstract painting. In 2021, she began her journey with abstract painting, and despite being self-taught, she continues to seek out new artistic avenues, with acrylic remaining her preferred medium.

How did you get into art?

Art has always been an integral part of my life, in one way or another. I have always been interested in design, drawing, architecture, craftsmanship, and two years ago, I fell in love with painting.



How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?

As for my style, I suppose it could be described as abstract. Being self-taught, I am still learning and exploring, so it is evolving rapidly, which makes it particularly unique.

How do you go about developing your work?

Typically, I begin my paintings with a statement on my canvas, something that is currently significant to me, which then guides the creative process. I enjoy using a variety of mediums, such as acrylic paint, markers, gold leaf, and sometimes geometric shapes or free brush strokes. The process is spontaneous and rarely planned, with texture and layering playing an important role.

Who or what influences you?

I find inspiration in significant issues, such as the psychological aspects of human existence, women's empowerment and the LGBTQIA+ community, the pursuit of equality, and the dismantling of toxic thought and behavior patterns in society. As a clinical psychologist, I attach great importance to preventive work and psychosocial education from an early age.

Make us curious. What is planned next?

Currently, I am preparing for my first exhibition, which is set to begin in June, and I am tremendously excited about it.
