Branka Ridicki

Branka Ridicki was born in Zadar, Croatia. She has earned a BA and an MA in Art History and Italian Language and Literature at Zagreb University, Zagreb, Croatia.

Branka currently lives in Colombo, Sri Lanka where she works in a variety of media, including photography, film and painting. By way of numerous travels and moving to different countries due to her work in documentary film projects, she developed an interest in different cultures, promoting intercultural dialogue in her art. Her travels are always a journey to places rich in culture: cities like Colombo, New York or Cairo. Branka responds to these places through her abstract paintings. In her own words "My art is a process of self-discovery through the inspiration I draw from nature, architecture and different cultures. My paintings depict histories of urban heritage, parallels between my childhood memories and the cultures that I encounter on my journeys".
