Ivana Komel

Born in Novska, Croatia in 1975 where I am still living and working. My art and child's imagination grew along with me. Art is now my life's companion, and sometimes these roles are reversed. In transferring, creating and forming ideas in a new visual form I am led by the current creative impulse, both in selecting the medium and the technique, but primarily through drawing and painting. The dominant techniques in my work are oil and acrylic on glass. 
I have exibited in many group exhibitions in Croatia. I also had solo exhibitions since 1993 in various Croatian cities (Novska, Sisak, Zagreb, Dubrovnik). I have illustrated several books. One of the ways of bringing my ideas into life are the three-dimensional designs where I use a variety of industrial materials, white Portland cement, plaster, iron, wire and organic materials found in nature. I have also designed and created jewelry using the tiffany and the combined technique. I also make models for fashion shows and costumes for plays, and work as a make up artist and stylist in collaboration with many photographers.
