Primož Bertoncelj


Born in Ljubljana in 1980, where he stud­ied archi­tec­ture. It was his older brother, Matjaž Bertoncelj, who first intro­duced him to comic books. Primož was only fif­teen years old when he cre­ated the char­ac­ters of his now iconic comic book Joker, which still runs today in a com­puter mag­a­zine of the same name. His imagery is almost sym­bol­ist, his line is bro­ken and aggre­sive, and there­fore reflects the nature of his absur­dist vignettes. Primož Bertoncelj’s work has been fea­tured in sev­eral exhi­bi­tions, while he remains a dis­tinctly inde­pen­dent author.
