Samir Biscevic, Norwood Park resident, studied to be an artist in his native country Bosnia and Herzegovina. When Serbs began their “ethnic cleansing” of Bosnians during the breakup of Yugoslavia, Biscevic emigrated to America to continue a career as an artist. Now, on the 20th anniversary of the genocide, Biscevic hopes his paintings educate others about the pain felt by his people.
