About me

Zelenjak 80
10000 Zagreb

About ten years ago, I joined the reenactment association – the Order of the Guardians of Zagreb, where I discovered calligraphy and heraldry. I fell in love with historical letters, as well as the coats of arms, and all about them. I have been leading calligraphy workshops in the Order for several years.

The Middle ages is such a fascinating topic, and that’s where my idea started – to make this wonderful traditional skill my source of income. To achieve that, I decided to leave my formal profession of geodesy engineer, and I opened the craft Kalidariart, where I make unique calligraphy gifts – kalidaris, and teach the medieval calligraphy.

At live events, I appear in a medieval dress, with the accompanying equipment, in order to bring the story of these beautiful, and unfortunately almost forgotten, historical letters even closer to those interested ….

I do not copy the Middle Ages, but rather, I want to give the historical letters a modern outfit, which will fit into any modern interior. Whether making calligraphy or coats of arms, I adhere to the valid rules for the period in question, which have been valid since the Middle Ages.

All my products are rich with symbolic meaning – from colors, to selected flowers, and symbols, which I choose according to the occasion, personal wishes and their symbolism.

In my works, one historical script or their combination, appears on each inscription, selected according to customer’s wishes or my artistic taste.

In addition, as I wish is to teach anyone who receives a gift like this, about what is on it, that information is written on the back of each gift. This adds another value to the gift – educational one, which makes each kalidar even more special.

If You are a person who understands and appreciates the value of handicrafts, who likes not only to give, but also to give something that You will be remembered by, then You will surely find something for Yourself or someone dear to You among my offer. In my opinion, little can surpass the value of a unique, handmade and personalized gift :-).
