About Us

(Clockwise from top-left Ksenija, Sergej, Nastasija, Ljuba)

Hi!

We are HahoninArt, a family of lifelong artists and designers based in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We launched this Webshop so that we could open up our life’s work of unique original canvas paintings and prints to art lovers across the entire world – not just confined to a single art gallery.

All of our works are Originals, created individually by either husband and wife, Sergej and Ljuba, or daughters Nastasija and Ksenija.

Please browse our portfolio, and feel free to get in touch.
