I was born in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) in 1973. I followed family tradition and finished Goldsmith handicraft. Beside that family tradition my intimate interests were based in drawing and painting. Later on, I am more and more occupied with studying and copying the masterpieces of other traditional artists, taking more serious steps in collecting practical arts and crafts experience. Willing to continue, in 1995 I enrolled the Academy Of Fine Arts in Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia an Herzegovina and intensively started to work with various techniques on canvas and other kinds of traditional medium, having few individual and group exhibitions in and out of home country.
Since 1986 my personal “art history” is accompanied with passion for Computer Graphic in general through legendary personal home computers ZX Spectrum, Commodore and AMIGA so, in middle 1990’s, when PC became powerful tool, CG takes a great deal in my work trying to join traditional and digital techniques having great or at least interesting peaces! Considering both, 2D and 3D projects going even further through animation, making those projects "alive" and that is why my work full of different media, approaches and projects.
Today, I still live in the city of Sarajevo working as an motion designer and illustrator on various graphic design projects on daily and long term basis.

Nevjerovatna osoba što se tiče ideja, mislim da je tako nešto teško pronaći u Sarajevu. U potpunosti se možete pouzdati da ćete imati unikatnost, profesionalnost, kao i privlačnost u svakoj vrsti umjetnosti koju Alen ponudi. Ja sam imao priliku da Alen uradi pripreme za štampu reklamnog materijala za firmu S&T BA, takođe smo sarađivali na drugi grafičkim projektima, gdje sam u svakom smislu riječi bio prezadovoljan. Skromnost mu je vrlina, a predanost radu njegova najveća snaga.
