Zeljka Paic is a full-time artist based in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She is a graduate of both the Academy of Fine Arts (2015) and Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering (2011) of Banja Luka.
As an artist and architect, Zeljka Paic combines her two professions to create an original style of painting: imagination, fused with knowledge of geometry, composition and color harmony, are the foundational principles of her art. The primary goal of her work is to find a balance between art and mathematics, between emotion and rationality. Observers perceive atmosphere in her paintings, photography and prints through color and achieve intellectual satisfaction through geometry.
