oil on canvas, 80 x 120 (80 x 60 + 80 x 60)
This diptych is painted for the upcoming group show at the Kirk Gallery, Denmark.
On my Instagram, the photo is more desaturated for some strange reason. I tried to change the contrast and the saturation but it just didn't look correct. The one posted here is better.

It took about a week or so to get in contact with the FB crew in order to save my hacked Instagram account. Thnx to Ben Slow, a fellow artist from the UK who also had the same situation happen to him last year, I was helped by a girl that also saved his account.
The original account is back and the new one I opened almost two weeks ago will be renamed and used to promote fellow artists.
whenever shit happens, crack a joke

Lately, my days are filled with some jobs and projects I usually don't do as much so posting here or on Instagram was kind of the last thing on my mind not only because there's nothing worthy of sharing but also because the focus is to have a bit more stable situation in order to go back to drawing and painting.
Every now and then I check the blog statistics and get surprised by how many of you still come to this blog, so the reason for writing this post is to say THANK YOU.
In few months starts a new season of mural projects, and for now, it looks like there will be a good number of them. And some other fun things as well. Thank you for showing interest in my work, I promise I'll be back soon.
This part is edited but unfortunately, I must inform you that my Facebook and Instagram were hacked. I managed to save the Facebook page but for now, it seems that the Instagram account is fucked....oh well...

I was invited to the city of Zadar to paint a mural on this abandoned building which is connected to another old, devastated, and much bigger building. That bigger one is currently in the process of renovation and hopefully, next year will be completed and turned into a cultural center for youth. Parallel to the painted wall, you can find an indoor skatepark-Menza that is a part of a squat named Neverland. I decided to use the name of the squat as an inspiration or the main theme and connect that with the current events (regarding cultural centers and culture in general) in Croatia. I believe that all cultural centers/platforms/places are in their own way the Neverland-place where youth is eternal. Picasso once said that every child is an artist, but the problem is how to remain one once you grow up. I think you remain one by going more often to theaters, art shows, concerts, by reading books instead of toxic comments on the internet, by learning to play some instrument, or trying out some dance classes. But to be able to do any of that, you need that magical place that nurtures those cultures. In my home town of Zagreb there is less and less of this type of places, and also much more abandoned buildings wasting away. In the past few years, but especially in this one, Zagreb lost some of the most popular and historical places where many of our music icons started to grow. Maybe what I'm trying to say is "Kudos to Zadar" for building something more useful than fountains or some overpriced gondola lifts.
As I was painting this mural, I had some people asking me why am I painting people like they are hanged or high on drugs. I hope that with the text above I managed to explain what I wanted to say with the mural. Thinking about some of those comments and interpretations I guess it's safe to conclude that without culture, your youth might end up the way some of the folks saw it..wasted youth.

Having posted a lot of works on different platforms, it kind of seemed unnecessary to upload all of them on this new website. Also, the webshop will soon be opened there as well.
This blog will still be the place where I'll post all of the works with more details and texts.
Fell free to check it out: LONAC

Remetinečki rotor imao je jednu od najvažnijih uloga u razvoju graffiti i street art kulture.
Prolaznici u tramvaju bi svako malo mogli vidjeti neko novo djelo u jednom od osam pothodnika koji su u cijelosti funkcionirali kao galerija na otvorenome. Ta galerija inspirirala me je da se i sam okušam u crtanju po zidovima. Živost grada i mladih bila je jasno vidljiva na tim zidovima koji bi svakih par mjeseci bili u potpunosti drugačiji.
Tog rotora i te galerije više nema.
Studenstki Centar imao je sličnu ulogu dugi niz godina gdje bi se kao i na Rotoru održavale brojne manifestacije i festivali ulične umjetnosti. Velik broj ljubitelja ove vrste kreativnog trošenja energije, kada bi stigli u Zagreb, raspitivali bi se za glavne lokacije urbane umjetnosti te bi uz par lokacija kao što su Branimirova i Medika uvijek bili upučeni prema Rotoru i SC-u.
Od ove godine SC također više nije "Meka" za crtanje po zidovima.
Kako bi se nastavilo slobodno izražavanje i razvijanje ove kulture, neovisno o sponzorima, udrugama, zajednicama, natječajima i festivalima, par entuzijasta je odlučilo potražiti zidove i buduće "platforme" na kojima bi se moglo neuvjetovano stvarati.
Tko god živi u Zagrebu (i okolici) i vjeruje da zna za dobru lokaciju, zgradu, zid, garaže za koje je moguće dobiti dopuštenje, neka se javi na mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
