Marko Šajn (1990) -
Slovenia




                                                          
            Marko Šajn is a visual artist working in the field of graphics, painting and art publications. In the past, he focused mainly on abstraction, building his paintings by combining stylized drawings and colored surfaces derived from basic geometric shapes, often using patterns and occasionally recognizable figural motifs as an additional element. Lately, he has been devoting himself to the human figure, exploring its movement in a space bounded by paper or canvas and it’s relations to the viewer. His works often leave the viewer curious and are open to individual interpretation.

            Marko enrolled in 2011 to study painting and graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. Since 2016 he has been working as a freelance graphic designer for various international clients. But his main interest lies in the fields of painting, art publications and printmaking. He’s an active member of the Hiša Kulture v Pivki and part of the Riso Paradiso collective in Ljubljana. He lives and works in the countryside around Pivka.
