“Sometimes a map speaks in terms of physical geography, but just as often it muses on the jagged terrain of the heart, the distant vistas of memory, or the fantastic landscapes of dreams.” Miles Harvey
The artist behind Mapperie, Sonja Bajic studied Architecture and Urban Design in France, Italy and Serbia. She has been designing and illustrating since she learnt to hold a pencil (or a pen, children love pens) and you can see her magic universe here.
As both an architect and artist, Sonja sees the world differently— not as a panorama of buildings and landmarks, but as memories and sensations. She understands how and why the physical world shapes our lives and is fascinated by the power that cartographers, architects and planners have to influence people, cities and entire cultures.
Mapperie was born from the belief that we leave a bit of ourselves everywhere we go, and that embracing that can give us a deeper understanding of where we are now.
Your memories and experiences are totally unique, and Mapperie turns them into a beautiful work of art.
