The National Gallery of KosovoThe National Gallery of Kosovo was established in 1979, as a necessity after the establishment of the Academy of Arts in 1973. Since its establishment, numerous artists have emerged from the Faculty of Art in Prishtina University. They have graduated in various fields such as painting, sculpture, graphic design, graphics and applied arts. From the founding of the National Gallery, then called The National Art Gallery, until 1990, Kosovan artists have promoted their artworks in numerous prestigious centers through various individual and collective exhibitions. They have received very positive reviews thanks to the unique approach to art and the unique circumstances in which their art was created, which has made it very distinct and original.
