Aleksandar Zograf

* 1963 in Pančevo/Serbia as Saša Rakezić, known under the pseu­do­nym Aleksandrar Zograf. He has made use of comics as a flex­i­ble and inex­pen­sive medium since the 1980s. It was mainly  the American pub­lisher Fantagraphics Books that boosted him to inter­na­tional recog­ni­tion in the early 1990s. Since 2003, he has reg­u­larly drawn comics for the inde­pen­dent Belgrade weekly Vreme. His sto­ries are travel-ori­ented and often deal with for­got­ten books or old news­pa­pers. He has shown his work in Paris, Rome, San Francisco and many other cities; his work has been pub­lished world­wide. He cur­rently lives and works as a jour­nal­ist and comics author in Pančevo.
