Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Marta Sesana has an unconventional and unique approach to figurative painting. She paints from the imagination, creating colorful characters that reference the cartoons of her youth as well as art-historical tradition. Her approach is painterly rather than illustrative, rendering these imaginary figures with expressive brush strokes that allow the colors to run.
