Artist Helena Janecic prioritizes the female protagonist, placing women in visual narratives of confidence, self-awareness, and reimagined tradition. Her work, which ranges from large-scale paintings to graphic, comic-book-inspired drawings, is both witty and engaging while striking a balance between aesthetic rigor, personal narrative, and social commentary.
