Vesna Leibowitz

Although Vesna has studied psychology, film directing and marketing and PR, she has organized 15 different art workshops for children and non professional artists in her hometown Nis in Serbia and at Artform Gallery in US. She has committed herself to giving all of the knowledge she has gotten at Kiski Area high school on liberal and fine arts in US, to the young people of her town. All of the workshops she has organized were free of charge to all the people that wanted to attend. 

She is an Art director and manager of many film and art projects like “Healhty fortress” Art project for kindergarten children that has been held for over 10 years, as well as FreeNetWorld international short film festival, E-Fortress Festival of internet, blog, entrepreneurship, music and art and many others.

She was also a manager of “Kupina” cinema and cultural center where she has organized many art and film projects for children and adults as well as many charitable events for the children of her country. 

She has also painted hundreds of paintings on glass and canvas that were exhibited in Nis, Serbia in various galleries as well as in USA, since 2001 until today. 

She has decided to fully commit only  to painting her visions in 2015 after attending the workshop at COSM of Alex and Allyson Grey.  

“Love and compassion are the most important things for me and I am trying, through my whole being across the brush, to put them on the canvas for all the other beings to see and feel. It is in the nature of all beings to cherish these two things the most above all. Practicing mindfulness through Art is educating people on inner-connectedness between all beings that can be used in any part of ourselves and our lives and bring happiness to each and every person. When you are aware of the Oneness and unity with the Universe and all beings and souls of this world you are able to feel some of the most amazing things in life with your body and soul and thus the others will too.”
