About Gradimir Smudja
Gradimir Smudja was born in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia in 1954. He left his home country in 1982 because he wasn't happy with the regime of the time. He worked at a gallery in Switzerland for a while, before moving to Italy, where he produced his 'Vincent & Van Gogh' comic album, that was published by Delcourt in 2003. In this homage to the famous Dutch painter, Smudja showed a great talent for imitating Van Gogh's style. A second book was published in 2010.
