JAŠA was born in Ljubljana in 1978. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice and has since been a unique presence in Europe's artistic landscape. One of Slovenia's most prolific and critically recognized contemporary artists, JAŠA is driven by his rhapsodic interpretations of situation, narrative, sculpture and performance. Through his alchemistic connection with material and content, JAŠA transforms spaces into experiences, driving them toward their poetic and ecstatic potentials. Pushing artistic boundaries through uncompromising vision for almost two decades, JAŠA has created a rich and remarkable body of work that includes multiple critically acclaimed solo shows and projects in Europe and the US. In his two active studios in New York and Ljubljana, Slovenia, JAŠA has created a unique environment which allows him to cultivate contextual and visual eventuality integral to his work. Rave reviews from influential publications such as Art in America have drawn public attention to his work, making him one of Modern Painters Magazine’s 100 Artists to Watch and one of the notable members of the Artist Pension Trust.
