Žiga Korent is a Slovenian artist with solo and group exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad. A member of Ljubljana Fine Artists Society (DLUL), who works and lives in Ljubljana. He works in different fields of creative industries and fine arts (from paintings to photography and graphic design). Moreover, he is also a frequently published illustrator and designer (furniture, textile and fashion design). He graduated "cum laude" in textile and fashion design at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering. Korent's works are, on the one hand, specific due to the way in which the content is deliver: unusual framing, divided scenes and the expansion of painting images into the space and on the objects. On the other hand, they attract us with their colourfulness, light and the author's main message: we need to give meaning to our lives anew by means of spontaneity, sincerity, playfulness, joy and beauty of the valuable everyday moments, which often evade our perception.The opening sentence in one of his catalogues (A kiss / 2017) perhaps best summarises his goals and intentions: “I will take a chance to sound utopian, but there comes a time when the best critique of humanity is to imagine the world we wish for, filled with love and kisses.”
