Anja Karisik was born in Sarajevo in 1987. Her family fled Bosnia and Hercegovina in 1994 and spent the following two years on the Adriatic seacoast of northern Croatia. These formative years created an enduring imprint on the artist’s worldview, with deep-seated memories of the intertidal life that covers the Adriatic coast. Cultured in the study of art, Karisik is a graduate of Fine Art History at the University of Toronto and studied experimental and figure drawing at the Toronto School of Art. Karisik’s acclaimed solo exhibitions have seen the artist’s work included in significant collections throughout the country and abroad. She has exhibited across Canada, including at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia, the Toronto Heliconian Club, and the Robert Bateman Centre in Victoria, BC. Karisik is represented by Ingram Gallery in Toronto, Ontario.
