Tomaž Šalamun was born in 1941 in Zagreb, Croatia and raised in Koper, Slovenia. He took a degree in Art History from the University of Ljubljana, and before devoting himself to poetry he worked as a conceptual artist. Having published more than thirty collections of poetry in his home country, he was recognized as one of the leading poets in Central Europe. His honors included the Preseren Fund Prize, the Jenko Prize, a Pushcart Prize, a visiting Fulbright to Columbia University, and a fellowship to the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa. His work appeared widely in English translation, and he regularly spent time in the U.S., having served as Cultural Attaché for Slovenia in New York. He was married to the painter Metka Krašovec. Šalamun died December 27, 2014, in Ljubljana.
