About JON KRAJA
“My painting is an emotional load that pours over canvas. It is a shiver frozen in time. As long as I’m alive, my painting never ends. It is my life, charged with meaning and misunderstanding, my unconscious that astonishes me with its instinct. It is my penance, and the string that ties my heaven and hell. It is love, which not everyone can see.”
Jon Kraja is born in Tirana in 1970, where he graduated from the Arts Accademy of Tirana in 1994. Descending from a family of artists, inspired by his grand father Master Kole Shiroka and raised during the communist dictatorship in Albania, Jon Kraja, has developed an original and personal style, based on autodidact research, going beyond conformities. He produces powerful and surprising artworks preoccupied by the unknown and the usefullness of lifeless objects.
Jon Kraja has exhibited in Albania, France, Netherlands, USA. His works are part of private collections.
