Artist Marko Tadić was born in Sisak in 1979. Having earned a degree in painting from the Academia di Belle Arti in Florence, he pursued his art career by appearing as a guest artist at residential programmes in Helsinki, New York, Los Angeles, Frankfurt am Main and Vienna. During his stay in Los Angeles he takes the advice of his Australian colleague, an animation professor, and creates his first stop animation work which brings him Radoslav Putar Award in 2008 for “Best Young Contemporary Artist”.
That was just the start of his award collection which now contains the 3rd prize at T-HT@MSU exhibition, Best Design Award at the Croatian Animation Festival (FHAF) in 2012, and Vladimir Nazor Award for “Best Exhibition” in 2015. Alongside Tina Gverović, he is a Croatian representative at this year’s Venice Biennale as a part of Branka Benčić’s curatorial concept.
