Alja is a 24 year old illustrator based in Slovenia, where she also grew up. She is currently finishing her degree at University of Natural Sciences and Engineering in Ljubljana. Art has always been a passion of hers, and she decided to take it more seriously in 2018.
She mainly works with her Wacom Intous graphic tablet, but she also loves traditional painting with oils. She is inspired by everything that surrounds her, mostly by nature and museums. Being a big fan of 60s and 70s we can feel the nostalgia in her illustrations.
Her favourite artists are Josef Frank, Henri Matisse, David Hockney and Pierre Boncompain.
Alja Horvat is also a part of Forbes 30 Under 30 Art & Culture 2020 and she also received an Elle Style Fashion Award for Young Talent in 2019.
