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.

Tom Król is a young German contemporary artist who explores symbols, shapes and details that might otherwise go unnoticed. His inspiration comes out of a mundane observation – he often finds a kind of beauty in daily life´s impressions. His paintings and drawings instill the ordinary aspects of our lives, they examine perceptions of our surroundings and the activities driven by commercial values.
