Vane Kosturanov was born 1979 in Strumica, Macedonia. He preferred expressing himself with drawings and pictures than with words ever since he was a little boy. He decided that he will be the one to fulfill his greatest wish - never to grow up, using the paintings and illustrations as a kind of a quickset edge from the world of the grown-ups. He has shared his view of the world on a number of exhibitions, both in the country and abroad.
