Others about my art work
I first became aware of Zhana D'Arte's work through an online magazine publication that she had created for a band of musicians from Canada - The Swamp Music Players. The art-strip was a nod to film noir, something close to my heart, and she captured the mood completely. It was a great honour for me that Zhana agreed to create a piece for the cover of my solo album 'Moon over Indigo' and the result is absolutely wonderful! Evocative with a hint of burlesque theatre which captures the mood of my work across all of my music projects as well as bringing in specific elements relevant to the songs and music of this album. An inspiring artist and real pleasure to work with!Wily Bo Walker, Web official
Bilder, die an Archetypen aufgeschriebener Träume erinnern – wie in ihren Lieblingsgeschichten die Gegenwart im Spiegel alter Volkssagen zu sehen ist.Zhana d'Arte zeigt uns eine Welt, die über das Tagesgeschäft hinaus geht, eine Welt, die ewig zu sein scheint. Die Details mögen sich von Tag zu Tag ändern, über die Generationen bleibt der Kern der Menschlichkeit gleich:
Liebe, Freiheit, Wahrheit, Leben.Dierk Haasis, Web official
Zhana d’Arte’s illustrations are a genius mix of the aesthetic of orthodox icons and the graphic art of the music and surfers subculture of artists like Marco Almera. I really like how she illustrates old Serbian epic poems putting really emotions into this old beautiful stories.Francesca Mitrovic, Web official

Motivation, inspiration & goals
I was born and grew up in a little romantic city in Germany, close to the source of the river Danube, and just like the Danube follows a long, winding bed through Europe, I had a long way before me to fall in love with my roots – with Serbia.
My main goal is to preserve all those legends, myths and poetry by transforming them into paintings, unfolding the full power of nature and love harnessed by Serbian and German tradition.
