Zinka Bejtic is a visual artist and filmmaker. She was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina but spent majority of her life in Toronto, Canada. Her work is based on a wide range of modalities ranging from graphic design, experimental film to video art. She is engaged in a time-based area of visual communication and subjects of her work often explore dichotomies between inside and outside, the polished and rough, the physical and emotional, distant and passionate. Specifically, through experiments in video and sound, she searches for new ways to explore conceptual visual forms common for non-narrative formats. Besides being a practicing artist, Zinka is also teaching. Currently, she is assistant professor of art and design at the College of Architecture Art and Design at the American University of Sharjah.
