MarquiseErmia's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Aleksandra Lukač (born 22 February 1991) is a serbian-austrian independent traditional artist based in Vienna, Austria.

Entirely self-taught, Lukač’s signature style incorporates a strong contrast of light and deep shadows, a play of hidden and shown, created in a traditional manner, using only graphite, charcoal and a couple of color pencils.

Although she seems to be a very open, cheerful and talkative being, her artworks revolve around dark and twisted imagery, focusing on sorrow, sadness and melancholy. Other important characteristics of Aleksandra's art are children and animals, who are often portrayed surrounded by strong light, which represents their innocence and purity.

Aleksandra partially grew up in Northern Serbia, having a happy and carefree childhood, and spending her golden summers in Bosnia visting her grandparents. A little shadow fell on that perfect childhood during the NATO Agression on her home country, which in the end led to her family's moving to the capital of Austria a few years later.

Vienna embraced her as one of her own, and the bond betweend Aleksandra and the city grew stronger day by day, and today there is no other place she could imagine herself living in. Yet, on the other hand, the longing for her hometown and her motherland, never ceases. Many (still) unveiled artworks have been born out of this nostalgia and will be presented to the public very soon.

Today, Aleksandra studies Architecture and Design at the Vienna University of Technology.

Just a normal image of you, not overly edited and without layers on it. Hair/clothes doesn't matter, but just get an expression on your face that you like + pose you like and I'll draw it. If you want to take a picture in a tank-top or firm fitting t-shirt, that would be cool. Let me know in what style you want to be, I can do fancy/elegant, Warrior/hunter, Sci-fi/fantasy, Superhero/Evil Villain. Or I can do something abstract. Really it's up to you, just give me a general direction and I will create a masterpiece :D (and hopefully do you justice!) :) If you don't want to post the picture just message me and I'll send you my e-mail. :)
