SHAPES AND COLORS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER

ABOUT ME

My name is Ivana Svjetličić. I started art a couple of years ago after experiencing the loss of my father. The pain I felt then made me feel that I wanted to compensate by painting. I set out on the path of creativity, wanting to convey the purest of my soul with colors on canvas. When I started in the world of painting, I didn’t have a certain style with which I wanted to express myself, but I started creating shapes with colors that turned into a face. Through creativity, I felt that I was expressing myself with pop art and that I was actually creating modern art. After my first created art painting, I received quite a large number of positive reactions and inquiries to buy it. In a short period after that publication, a married couple from Germany bought my artwork “Sensibility”. At the persuasion of my friends, I created a social platform Instagram where a large number of people followed me, both people and the gallery. It’s only been 3 months and I was contacted by “Van Der Plas Gallery”, Manhattan, New York whose email said that they have been following my work and would like to have my artwork displayed in their group exhibition in March 2022 at the exhibition “Key to Dreams”.It was an opportunity in which I saw a turning point in the very beginning, then the hobby. My job as an ambulance nurse provided me with funds and credit, and I bravely accepted the invitation and performed at that exhibition. Having made contacts, after the exhibition the paintings remained in New York, and I applied for the competition for the annual exhibition “Wide Open 12” at “BWAC Gallery”, Brooklyn, New York, which was scheduled for July 2022. After 2 months, I received e-mail in which the gallery informed me that the art painting “Kolorita” was chosen among the 60 most outstanding works from 10,000 entries. Then I took unpaid leave at work and went to another continent for 3 months to seize opportunities! That summer of 2022, which I spent in New York, opened the door for many collaborations, I found a manager, and in September of the same year, three of my artworks participated in a campaign by “Plogix Gallery” where they were shown on the screens of squares, airports, restaurants and shopping centers in world capitals – New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris and London. In February 2023, I exhibited my works in the “Galeria Azur”, Madrid at the group exhibition “Reveries”. On the first weekend of September 2023, I opened a solo exhibition “Shapes And Colors That Make You Feel Better” at LittleFiel Gallery, Brooklyn, New York and my paintings were exhibited in that gallery for a whole month. At the end of September 2023, as part of the “Auto Sport Adria” event, works of art were exhibited alongside the most luxurious cars in Europe, as the only exhibiting artist. In March of this year, I participated in the “Exclusive Art Fair” in Family Mall. In cooperation with the “Croatian umbrella” brand, unique umbrellas with visuals of my artistic paintings are available on the market.
