Krnjajić

Born in 1995, in Novi Sad. In 2020, she completed her Bachelor’s at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, module: printmaking, in the class of Zvonko Tilić. At the moment, she is doing her Master studies on the same module, in the same class of Zvonko Tilić. She has had individual exhibitions, as well as group ones. She is an awardee of the Yearly Fine Arts Department Award for the most successful printmaking artwork (2020). Lidija also won the award for the best print on the 4. International Printmaking Biennal in Čačak (2020). She is an active member of the Šok Zadruga collective and also a co-founder of open printmaking studio and organisation Grafička Zadruga. Lidija Krnjajic’s artistic practice is based on the examination and exploration of printmaking and drawing styles and techniques with a clear tendency of insisting on analogous processes of work and thinking. Her work itself is based on conflict, taking on a personal poetics and a clearly engaged attitude about the nature of the processes that underlie every life and being, processes such as movement, steadiness. In her work, Lidija also explores the emptiness that is an integral part of every composition, interacting with different elements  depending on the topic she explores. Empty space becomes its own separate element, within it Lidija finds details which make each of her work unique.
