In the course of history, horses have been faithful companions to
people and contributed to the development of civilization. Their
divine beauty appeared in many paintings throughout the world.
Horses have always been and will stay an inexaustable source of
inspiration to many artists.

I hope that my work would give at least a small contribution to
cherishing the value and beauty of this thoroughbred animal.

჻ Life writes strange stories and we, the artists - painters, poets,
writers and musicians collect them while walking along its strange
paths. Why do we exist? Why do we create?

What's our mission? We are here to turn all that is evil into good,
ugly into beautiful, to help people forget about their worries and
sorrows even for a second and yield to our magic.
Artist Suzana Stojanović Suza was born in Vranje, a small town
in southern Serbia, on April 18, 1969. She comes from a family
of intellectuals - her mother does writing and, apart from a few
works of fiction, many of her textbooks on language and
literature have been published. Being surrounded with books
from the earliest days of her life, Suzana started reading and
painting when she was four.

The early period of her artistic work lasted till 1988. During that
period, she tried her skill at different fields and left behind
hundreds of art works. She studied painting skills of the Old
Masters and different techniques (pencil on paper, watercolour,
pastel, oil on canvas, mosaic, encaustics, iconography,
sculpture and engraving).
She participated in many group exhibitions and art colonies as well. Apart
from being the winner of numerous prestige awards, she has also won
wide social and international recognition for her artistic work. She finished
High school of mathematics and technical science and participated in
numerous maths, physics and literature competitions, achieving
outstanding results. She thoroughly studied astronomy and acquired
enviable knowledge in this field. The same year she finished High school
of mathematics and technical science, Suzana also finished High school of
music, specializing in the violin. She participated in many music contests,
festivals and music ceremonies. She composed her first composition when
she was fifteen years old.
Having finished High school of music, she studied literature and continued perfecting playing the piano. She spent thousands of hours
listening to Mozart, Bach and Beethoven and reading and studying the works of the world's most famous writers. However, painting has
always been her greatest love. Suzana's return into the art scene after thirteen years was marked by "The Magical World of Horses" series in
2001. Many of her paintings are to be found in private collections in Serbia, the USA, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Macedonia, Montenegro,
Croatia and Slovenia. Presently, Suzana lives and works in Niš, paints horses and thoroughly studies the horse anatomy; she writes short
stories and also working on a book about art called "Following the steps of the Old Masters", in which she describes in detail not only her
long-lasting experience, experiments and various techniques, but also doing drawings and painting paintings. She dedicates a story to each
of her paintings, and her dream is to compose again some day and make animated films...
