Who Are We?
Alma Telibecirevic studied painting and education at the Classical Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Venice, Italy, while being directly exposed to some of the most amazing art pieces ever created.
Her passion for art developed during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo- the longest siege in a modern human history. While her birth city Sarajevo was bombed and snipers were shooting all over the city, Alma never quit to believe that art is essential for survival. It’s extremely important and helpful to create art under threat. Although art cannot change minds, it can create a space for dialogue around difficult issues and help people express some of the deepest emotions they carry inside.
She attended and finished Art High School during the Sarajevo siege very often using just basic tools to create art. She is a professional Artist and Art Teacher!
