Ivana Armanini graduated painting at Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, where she is living. Soon she started creating comics and paintings. She also became a teacher and professor of visual arts. Ivana participated at more then hundred international and domestic group exhibitions.
Her work was published in a lot of magazines, fanzines, periodicals, such as Stripburger, Stripburek and publications for expositions. Along with Dusan Gacic, she created the comic group Wild Eye. Eventually, the group ended its activities and Ivana founded Komikaze collective in 2002.
Since then the collective partakes on many comic and street art events all around the world redefining the concept of comics. Komikaze’s activities can not be divided from activism and social awareness. Their style is completely out of all definitions, mixing up visual arts, mixed media, VJ-ing and performance art.
