Jon Kraja (b.1970) emerged in the art scene in the early 1990 as a surprising contemporary artist in painting and set design.
He is known for his unpredictability in producing powerful artworks experimenting in biomorphic forms, paintings, photography and sculptures, preoccupied by the unknown and the usefulness of lifeless objects.
Jon Kraja has exhibited in Italy, Germany, Albania, France, Netherlands, USA. His works are part of private collections.

“My painting is an emotional load that pours over canvas. It is a shiver frozen in time. It is my life, charged with meaning and misunderstanding, my unconscious that astonishes me with its instinct. It is my penance, and the string that ties my heaven and hell. It is love, which not everyone can see.”
