is a Croatian artist who is fascinated with history, both personal and shared.

Martina Grlić depicts scenes of everyday life in former Yugoslavia, ranging from men and women working in factories to monumental still lifes of children’s toys, in her photorealist paintings. Martina is interested in the strong emotional reactions viewers have to these works, which range from nostalgic to political, and how these reflect changing values in society.

She received an MA in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. She is the winner of the 2012 Erste Grand Prix for Best Painting  and completed a residency at Glo’art in Belgium in 2014.
