NINA BUNJEVAC

Nina Bunjevac started her art training in Yugoslavia, at the Djordje Krstic School for applied arts. In 1990 Nina moved to Toronto, Canada, where she continued her studies in art at the Central Technical School Art Centre; in 1997 she graduated from OCAD in the Drawing and Painting department. Formerly a painter and a sculptor, Nina found her calling in sequential arts, a form that seemed to naturally evolve out of the narrative component in her sculpture installation work. Pen and ink became the medium of choice.

Nina’s comic strips have been published in many European and North American publications including Mineshaft, Exile, Taddle Creek, Black, Giuda, Le Dernier Cri, Komikaze, and Broken Pencil. In 2011 Nina’s collection of comics titled “Hladna Kao Led” was published by the Serbian publisher of comics “Omnibus”;  the English version came out in 2012 with the Canadian publisher “Conundrum Press” under its original title “Heartless”. She presently resides in Toronto and divides her time between writing, illustrating and parenting her 14 year old son.
