Miran Blazek

I was born in Osijek, Croatia, in 1983. After finishing a school of applied art and design, I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, graduating in 2006. I then began to teach drawing and painting in Osijek's art and design school, and enrolled in a postgraduate (master's) program at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia, which I completed in 2012.

Also in 2012, I received the Radoslav Putar Prize—an award presented annually to the best Croatian artist below the age of 35. The Prize also granted me an ISCP residency in New York and the solo exhibition at the Institute for contemporaray art in Zagreb

Since 2014, I have been teaching drawing and painting as an assistant at the Academy of Arts in Osijek, and curating as one of its founders the project of Student Biennale – a joint platform for all students of art colleges and beyond. I have had a number of solo and group shows.
