Bojan is an author for Widewalls. He is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Belgrade, majoring in English studies. He is particularly interested in English linguistics and culture. Bojan is also interested in Photography and Digital Art.

Jordy van den Nieuwendijk is a Dutch illustrator and painter. His whimsically colorful works are instantly recognizable, and he is one of the most sought-out and productive artists of today.

Nieuwendijk studied art at the Graphic Lyceum in Rotterdam and the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, but he dabbled in the art of painting much before that, drawing pictures for classmates and painting graffiti. He gained popularity in 2009 and has hardly stopped working since.

His painting style has been compared to jazz music – simple, straightforward, passionate and joyful. His designs are witty and funny, drawn in bright primary colors, reminiscent of all things simple and lovely. His strokes are natural and whimsical, doodles and squiggles and swirls, in perfect harmony with Nieuwendijk’s quirky nature – the artist held a funeral for his own alter ego back in his schooldays in a wish to be reborn in the artistic sense.
