Helena Janečić

helena_janecicHelena Janecic 26-* 1979 in Osijek / Croatia. Studied painting at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina and at the Art Academy in Zagreb (MA). While still in high school, she began drawing comics for the school newspaper. Painting dominated her university studies, but she always finds her way back to comics. In both media, her work illuminates many aspects of contemporary queer discourse. In painting, this takes the form of idyllic images of Slavonic farm women. In comics, the super hero Horny Dyke takes the stage. She works as a freelance painter and comic book author in Osijek.
