Mirjana Milosevic is a talented makeup artist from Serbia who creates amazing body paint illusions and is known by the nickname Kika.
Kika’s parents said that she learned to draw before she learned to walk. She was drawing every day and on any surface that was available. When Mirjana was 11, her sister’s friend asked her to draw a cartoon characters mural on his wall. The result was awesome, and she felt really happy doing it.
She grew up in a country that was struck by war and it was a really hard time, so her parents couldn’t arrange for her to go to an artistic school. Mirjana spent all of her free time after school on improving her skills.
Three years after graduation from high school, Mirjana gave birth to her son, Danilo, and motherhood gave her the strength she needed to start doing what she’d always wanted to do.
Mirjana became the most popular kids’ muralist in her country, but because of an accident with her spine she took a break. Doctors told her this was essential if she wanted to have more children.
In 2012, Mirjana gave birth to her second child, Nikola. Nikola inspired her to start doing kids face-painting, and she was very successful in that as well.
After that, she completed a basic makeup course and became interested in special effects makeup and body-painting. Now Kika is a fantastic body paint artist and creates amazing illusions.
She has won a lot of awards for her skills:
- 2015 – The Oskull Award – The Festival of Serbian Fantastic Film
- 2015 – 3rd place – International Face-Painting Competition in Serbia
- 2016 – 1st place & Beauty Vlogger of the Year – NYX Face Awards Serbia competition
- 2017 – 1st place – International Face-Painting Competition in Serbia
Kika and Stojan met when she contacted him to make her first video for entering NYX Face Awards competition.
He has always showed interest in creative work. Don’t think that he knows how to draw ‒ he doesn’t. Photography and videography was his primary area of education, and he is also self-taught. The city where he lives did not offer that much to people with a different point of view but as time passed he met some people who changed his life, but after he met Kika he found everything he had always been searching for, in every meaning of that word.
His professional career includes a lot of projects, commercials, short movies, music videos, photography shootings, etc.
For almost 7 years he has been working on improving his skills, almost every day, when he is not sleeping – he likes to sleeps a lot, but he says that even then he is working and we must trust him.
