ARTIST PER MONTH | Tjaša Cizej: Hide Yourselves
One of the most prominent representatives of the youngest generation of graphic designers likes to combine illustration, typography and playing around with textiles in her work. Her protagonists are shy fellows who try to hide from everything that surrounds them in this imaginary world – bold shapes in vibrant colours, unexpected compositions and typographic interventions.
Tjaša Cizej (1998) is a sophomore of Graphic Design at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. She spends most of her time designing posters and illustrating various characters and figures. In 2018, she was one of the finalists of the SoYoung Magazine illustration competition, later getting the opportunity to illustrate an article for one of their issues. This year, her poster was selected for the new issue of Type Directors Club Tokyo Vol. 31’. She also participates in various group publications and exhibitions, and is a member of the young artistic collective Podmladek.

FRESH FISH | Drawing
group commercial exhibition
In the new edition of the FRESH FISH commercial exhibition, we are focusing on drawings and their role in various media. The featured artists include drawings in their work in innovative ways, where the drawing does not serve as the starting point for a piece of art, but is rather placed at the forefront and therefore acts as an independent medium that passes into paintings, prints, collages and zines. The artists work in the fields of illustration, graphic design, painting, photography, and video, which leads to the heterogeneity of the artistic expressions on display. By intertwining approaches, techniques, and media, the exhibition questions the limits and the multilayered role of drawings in contemporary artistic production, while simultaneously offering a fresh overview of the work of local artists of the young and middle generation.
