Kristina Tica (*1995, Belgrade) completed BA Painting, University of Fine Arts and MA Digital Arts, Faculty of Media and Communications in Belgrade and currently is studying at Kunstuniversität Linz, MA Interface Cultures. She participated in several study programs within Central Saint Martins, UAL and Slade School of Fine Art, UCL.

Her practice is focused on practical and theoretical research in machine learning and critical AI. Using machine learning algorithms to create her works, she aims to address aesthetic and ethical elements of the implementation of such tools, following the current innovations in automated image-making and image-reading processes. Her body of work explores semiotic keys and visual languages in different media, such as painting, video, installation and generative new media art with elements of interactivity.

Her works have been exhibited at festivals such as Ars Electronica (AT) (2020,2021), Speculum Artium (SI) (2020,2021), European Open Science Forum Trieste (IT) (2020), The Wrong (2017, 2019, 2021). She is the recipient of the art+science AI Lab Award (RS) 2020. Her work has recently been presented in The Practice of Art and AI published by Hatje Cantz. She currently lives and works in Linz.
