Urban Break-


Working on a painting for a group show in Seoul, South Korea.
There are some crazy names on the list of artists for this event so I will post more details soon...really hyped for this show.

The composition/concept for the painting is the one from last year but since I wasn't so happy with the result the first time, I felt some changes should be done. My plan is to do more of this type of work which is a bit more personal than some previous ones and also leans on a moodier side.

one more thing:
Finally, my studio now has a brand new professional printer for art prints, so in a month or so there will be signed prints available for purchase. 
If you already have some of the favorites ( murals, drawings, paintings) that you would like to own as a signed print, feel free to write me.

In a day or two, I will write a few words about this work. 
Just need to rest and prepare for a wall twice the size of this one :D
Until then, enjoy my new process video

Inside the studio


Here is a short new video from inside the studio. I've been editing this one on my iPad pro and really had a blast doing it. 
This video might be my favorite so far, and editing on my tablet made it much easier for some reason. Some crazy good apps out there I must say :)

Instagram account



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.

 Hi there.

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...

Procreate drawings


I started drawing and painting digitally, mostly in Procreate. This is an awesome "workout" and lately, I've been doing it every day. I will post some more studies in a week or so.

"Kulturno Uzdizanje"/ "Cultural Upliftment"

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.

"Polupani Lončići"

Mural painted at Lauba, Zagreb, 2020.

“Polupani Lončići” In Croatian, that would mean something like smashed or broken pots. This phrase would be used in our childhood game known as hide and seek. During the game, if you saw someone snitching, not counting correctly, calling out the wrong name, pretending to have not been seen and called out, simply cheating, or in other words, not playing by the rules, you or some of your playmates would have to yell "POLUPANI LONČIĆI"

The phrase would symbolize the end of the unfair or crooked game. It would also mean a reset, a new start for a fair and just game.

I also started filming and editing my own painting process, so here is my first ever "serious" video.
Subscribe to the channel for more future videos, from now on I'll try to do this for every project.

Finally, back to painting walls.
This is just half of the wall I started painting today at Lauba in Zagreb.
I've also started another wall with my buddy Chez at another location.

some other news:
A month ago I got an invitation to take over the Paint Guide Instagram profile in June. I'll be posting daily about various artists that inspired me. Take over will last for five days, as usual, posting several posts daily with lots of images and texts. this is a huge honor and a privilege I won't take for granted so I'm already starting with preparations.

After ten years of posting here, on Facebook and Instagram, I finally took some time to create my own website.

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

studio atmosphere

Working on some new stuff for the "Disposable Income"- an art collector event in central Florida. These few works are a continuation of street scenes painted/drawn with gouache and ink. With this series, I'm using a bit more colorful pallet and instead of crosshatching, I'm playing with line values and strokes. 

I have wanted to write a bit about this blog, my work, progress, and different direction for some time now.
Last year was kind of rough. I had some crazy bad experiences with a few festivals which made me rethink all this "street art" thing. It also inspired me to reflect on all that I've done to this point and where my focus should be in the future.
This doesn't mean I will stop painting murals at the festivals or in general.
Not being placed in a certain box, and avoiding labels has always been the main reason I loved painting outside. If I wanted to do a more realistic or more illustrative piece or even try something different, no one was there to say "Hi, but that's not what we know you for so don't do that. Do what we like". Usually, that is what galleries do, but there are more and more organizations that have this kind of approach in the "urban art scene". I would like to point out that my experiences with galleries in the past two years were only positive. A lot of "street art" projects are being funded by the city and might have deals with tourist agencies, so sometimes, the mural artist just ends up being a hand for their propaganda. Not always, but on some occasions. It is a good thing that people have embraced this type of art and now it is easier than ever to paint a big wall not worrying about prejudice and being accused of destruction of property (even if you had permission to paint). Mural festivals can hardly work without sponsors and the more money a certain project has the higher quality it least that is how it should be, and I have nothing against that. A lot of people that are involved in this type of organization are my friends, and I'm aware of how hard it is to get something started and how much effort it takes to organize a big event.
I just think that the people who are invited to a certain project are not there to please the sponsors or make a tourist commercial for the city.  That then becomes a commercial/ commission job that costs much more than what the fee is for doing "your own thing".

My own thing:
Looking at some earlier works, I can see a lot of bad decisions, some compromises, and not the best approaches, but I'm happy they were made. After all, "More is lost by indecision than wrong decision" as Cicero so eloquently put it a long time ago.

Lately, I'm spending my time in my studio working with oil, gouache, and aquarelle so that I can completely transit from spray to brushes. No, that doesn't mean I will stop painting with spray or totally change what I do.  I just want to expand my skill set so that I can work more freely without relying on just one medium (and the quantity of it), especially if I'm painting outside my home town.
I'm also interested in developing/ exploring different palettes, working on my brushstrokes, and avoiding total rendering. With spray, it is much easier to render and make smooth transitions, but if the whole piece is like that, it can look boring. It is also fun to try out new mediums and see where they take me. Repeating the same trick dumps me down and makes me not want to paint anymore.

I could continue writing this part but I'd rather leave the future works to speak on their own.
In some future posts, I would like to write a bit about influences ( adopted art parent and inspirations and a shout out to some contemporary artists whose works make me continue to work and evolve.
It might seem unusual to see this type of text, but I just had to throw it out. Having it all written here will make me work more but also stand my ground if the situations similar to the ones from the last year occur. Let's hope they won't.

Peeling off layers of wrong influences and mistakes can hurt, but it makes more room for healthier growth.

European Central Bank Art Collection

 Drawings from “Gerascophobia” series exhibited at European Central Bank will soon be a part of their art collection. It was a huge honor for me to be a part of a group exhibition of Croatian contemporary art in ECB, and this is something that I didn’t expect.

Neki Novi Zidovi

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

“Com-Templ.-Arte” festival, Tomar, Portugal.

Last week I visited the city of Tomar in Portugal and painted a mural for “Com-Templ.-Arte” festival.
I'm not that happy with the work because I had the sun on the wall the whole day, and also not enough days to define some details ( hands, faces, cones). 
I do like the composition, repetition of the number 3 and the light, but maybe if the execution was a bit different it would work better. 
The whole work was kind of improvisation in a way..
I wanted to try out a few things and I certainly plan to revisit the idea , maybe try out only with brushes.

Last few months I closed myself in a studio in order to work more with oils and drawings. For some time now there is an idea to write a bit on all that I've done to this point, what I'm happy with and what I plan to change. Until I post a few words about all of that, I would just like to thank everyone who gave me the chance to travel, show my work, paint and grow.

I am honored to be a part of the group exhibition of Croatian contemporary art staged at European Central Bank in Frankfurt.

text from the ECB web page: 
Our art collection comprises around 480 paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and art objects.

The series aims to showcase the diverse range of each country’s artistic output and highlight some of the key ideas currently being discussed in the art world. From 27 June to 18 October 2019, the 22nd exhibition of the series puts the contemporary art scene of Croatia into the spotlight. The exhibition features both emerging and established artists, with their works drawing on the complex relations between society, politics and culture.

Presented artists: Igor Grubić, Tina Gverović, Kristian Kožul, Lonac, David Maljković, Ana Mušćet, Damir Očko, OKO, Lala Raščić, Goran Trbuljak, NoraTurato i Zlatan Vehabović.
