My name is Tea Jurisic, I am an illustrator, muralist, and founder of KVAR illustration studio. I got my MA in Graphics from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia, and since then I worked with clients from all around the world on different creative projects. I love to work with watercolour on paper and with various drawing techniques such as ink, pencil and markers, and I use digital techniques as well. I created a murals in many European countries, such as Norway, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia...But also the murals which are visible only to the certain people! One of my favourite ongoing projects is to paint inside of prisons. I have already created illustrations on the walls in 3 prisons, and there will be many more. The idea is to revitalize the space and to observe how the people react to the illustration and colour inside the prison. I am a free soul and sometimes I live and work as a digital nomad in a small Mercedes 207d studio, together with my partner. We travel along Europe, trying to collect impressions and inspiration from many different cultures.
