Paulina Jazvić

Paulina Jazvić was born in 1973 in Zagreb, Croatia. She has two academic degrees, first she graduated from the Faculty of Textile Technology and later on she earned a degree in Graphic Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. She has exhibited her works at several solo and group exhibitions including Croatia, Slovenia, Poland and Italy. She is a winner of a number of awards, among them The Smirnoff International Fashion Award for the best young European designer assigned for the creation of dress made of dried roses. She is a member of Croatian Association of Artists (HDLU).

She is an established artist known for her characteristic artistic style reflected primarily in large format paintings as well as art installations created at the boundary between the traditional painting and abstraction. She is an artist with talent for a quick, expert and neat line, excellent drawer. She often uses the black continuous line in creating different figurative forms frequently combining them with the use of reduced palette of colours, usually red and yellow. Every line expresses an emotion and has its own symbolic meaning; it depicts a shape and separates it from mono dimensionally applied colours. She further enriches artistic expression in her paintings by covering the surface of the canvas with bits of photographs, imprints of objects, various inscriptions and other visual vestiges. The artist questions her own role of a woman and mother from the point of view of a typical female position in modern society. Paulina Jazvić lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia.
