Award for Tina Konec at the Slovenian cultural holiday.
The artist who first presented her works in 2017 at a solo show at Bežigrad Gallery 1 received the 2019 City of Slovenske Konjice Award for Young artist at the municipal celebration of Prešeren Day, the Slovenian cultural holiday. Tina Konec added the 2019 to her grand prix at Ex-tempore Piran 2018 and the first prize at Ex tempore Grožnjan 2018.
As she stated, her work is thematically linked to nature, "Through my drawings I express nature, which represents universality and eternal relevance. I am fascinated by the repetition of natural forms in micro and macro worlds."
Tina Konec was born in Maribor in 1992. In 2015 she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana under the tutelage of Prof Zmago Lenárdič, before continuing her post-graduate studies under the mentorship of Tugo Šušnik. She lives in Ljubljana and Oplotnica.
