Stanka Golob: An Artist of The Big Picture

Stanka Golob (65) is a Slovenian artist whose devotion for painting first arose in 1981.

Since 1994, she explores the effects of sand and natural colours and different sizes of granularity in art intensively. For this, Stanka Golob only uses sand collected in Slovenian rivers, mountains and quarries.

Her lengthy education culminated with studies at the School of Drawing and Painting – Arthouse, a college of Visual Arts in Ljubljana, where she graduated in 2012 with a thesis entitled “Sandy Illusions – The Impact of Different Thicknesses and Natural Colours of Sand on the Illusion of Space on a Two-Dimensional Painting Surface”. As she is still researching and experimenting with this interesting painting medium, the motifs and base of the work are very diverse.

Furthermore, she participated in various international art contests in which she received several awards for her work. As a critically acclaimed artist many art historians, journalists and fellow artists wrote about her artwork which Stanka Golob already presented in over 70 solo exhibitions and more than 150 group exhibitions in Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Croatia, and France.
