Astrit Dragovoja - what a talented artist! An Albanian, born in 1991 on the south coast of Montenegro, who loves to try everything life has to offer. After studying architecture at the University of Podgorica, he worked in his mother's architectural office. Besides that he spent no less time with extreme sports like kiting, windsurfing and as a model on catwalks. A back injury suddenly changed his life and forced him to give up his passions. To overcome this challenging period in his life, he began to draw as he had done in his childhood. One day during his convalescence he decided to resume his sister's painting with oil colors after she had given up and wanted to throw everything away. The amazing results of this can also be seen for the second year in a row at KONRAD Art Week 2021. I am proud to have discovered this outstanding artist and have made Astrit an integral part of the KONRAD Art Gallery.
