Samira Kentrić

Graphic Novel

Samira Kentrić (1976) is an artist who transfers the social reality of her time into images. She enjoys creating surreal situations to highlight what she believes is the most real. She works in various techniques, as many as she finds appropriate. Her main interest lies in the area where public and political expressions meet with the intimate aspects of people’s every-day. She wants her work to communicate themes that lack reflection and are therefore often awkward and hidden. She has published three graphic novels Balkanalije (autobiography) in 2015, Pismo Adni (a visual and literary commentary about the refugee situation) in 2016 and Adna in 2020.
