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.

Luca Padroni is an Italian contemporary artist known for his large-scale works in which fields of color form different architectural spaces. The starting point in his work are drawings and small-scale studies in oil which evolve in monumental paintings. Powerful and ambiguous, his paintings embrace the observers as an integral part of the image.

The formal composition of the picture depicts a vigorous sense of motion, through unrealistic and impossible architectural spaces like in his series of work titled Fault Line. The poetic of dynamism and brightness in these works, their geometric severity, invite the viewer to explore the ability of ideal cities to stimulate reflection and change.
