Nina Stopar (1982) studied Philosophy and the Slovenian language in Ljubljana. She was a teacher for almost ten years. 2016, she attained an MA in Aesthetics (mentor Lev Kreft). She studied contemporary art and claimed that nowadays, more than ever before, the artist himself has to become the artwork. She then dedicated her life to art more professionally, completing an MA in Painting at the Academy of Fine Art and Design in Ljubljana in 2021.

As a teacher of the 5Rhythms movement practice, she believes movement is the gateway to creativity, abstraction, and the artistic self. She explores abstraction as the dance of intuition of the body in motion.
Lives and works in Žerjav, Črna na Koroškem, and Ljubljana, Slovenia.
