The brillant art of Tatjana Krizmanic
Tatjana Krizmanic's brilliant pastel drawings and oil paintings depict
ordinary life with a distinctly European sensibility. Krizmanic's work is marked by a
warm cheerfulness, where bright colors and swirling perspectives make everyday settings
come alive. She brings a touch of magic to commonplace scenes, such as a trip to the
farmers' market or morning coffee. Surreal and inventive, her work recalls Chagall,
Matisse, Klimt, Picasso – influences she grew up with.
Born in Zagreb, Tatjana started painting at age fourteen. After studying at the
University of Zagreb, she moved to Washington, D.C. where she completed her studies
at Georgetown University. Over the next ten years she worked as an art director while
creating paintings for friends and patrons.
Since her first exhibit in Boulder, Colorado, she has built a strong following,
and her paintings reside in numerous private collections and museums. Her work is
shown in galleries in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. Krizmanic divides her
time between her home on the Adriatic coast and Crestone, Colorado. To see more of
