ABOUT

Vanja Seferović is an artist and designer from Belgrade, Serbia.

Whether she is working for clients as an art director, illustrator, designer, animator or communicating her ideas through different exhibitions and self-initiated projects, her work speaks through carefully chosen metaphors as well as expressive lines and shapes.

Her work is both poetic and direct, beautiful and meaningful, playful and serious, which are just some of the contrasts she loves to play with.

Vanja obtained her Bachelors degree at the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade (2012.) and her Masters in Visual communication, at Kingston University in London (2014.), where she was also awarded with the D&AD InBook Award.

She was one of the founders of Shonski art & design studio (2010-2019.) and Institute of Applause (2018-2019.).

She had five solo and numerous group exhibitions in Serbia and abroad.
