Visitor, by Ivan Grubanov

Ivan Grubanov is mainly known as a very succesful and innovative visual artist, using computer graphics and video in a distinctive, expressive style. He was born in Former Yugoslavia in 1976, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade. After graduating in 2001, he did a residency at the Art Academy in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He won several stipends and his work, paintings and photographs as well as video installations, were shown in several international exhibitions. Lesser known about him is the fact that he made comics in the period 1996-97, contributing to Serbian, Belgian and Italian comic magazines. In 2002 and 2003, he attended the trial against Milosevic, "the man who determined my life and identity as Serbian", and made over 200 sketched drawings.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
