Bosnian and Herzegovinian artists who acquired their artistic reputation in the country and abroad in the pre-war period, among which are the most important Dževad Hozo, Seid Hasanefendić and Salim Obralić, each in their own way, with their artwork and organized exhibitions, contributed to the cultural life in Sarajevo during the city under the siege.

The resistance to the crimes and aggression created a new art scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina, coloured by a strong social engagement. The actors at that time still young and mainly students, supported by the Obala Art Centar became recognized at the international art scene in the years after the war: Maja Bajević, Šejla Kamerić, Nebojša Šerić Shoba, Milomir Kovačević Strašni, Anur Hadžiomerspahić, and others. Damir Šagolj came out of the war as an excellent photo-reporter, a photographer with a world's reputation today (Reuters).
