In this episode, we host Slovenian painter and designer Žiga Okorn. Žiga Okorn graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Ljubljana with an exhibition in the Tivoli Park’s old Boat House in 1991 with prof. Gustav Gnamuš and prof. Tomaž Brejc. He co-authored the renovation of the former military prison, now known as the Celica Youth Hostel, where he also designed and painted one of the cells. For its renovation, together with the Sestava group, he received the City of Ljubljana Distinction and was awarded the Golden pencil award by the Chamber of Architects of Slovenia. Since 1994 he has worked as a freelance artist, regularly exhibiting paintings, watercolors, drawings, and sculptures in Slovenia and abroad.
