Super Andrija painting

A painting of a project housing building block from my neighborhood Siget (Zagreb, Croatia) called "Super Andrija" surrounded with pop icons from the 90s and other childhood memories. I added some detail shots below so you can see the tiny scenes better.

The painting will be exhibited on the 1st year show of the Columbia Visual arts MFA program at the Wallach Gallery, 615 West 129th Street, New York. The show is curated by Natalie Bell.

Šatoraši, Savska 66, illustration from 2015.

This illustration was published about 3 years ago in Globus magazine and it always comes to my mind that I never published it on my blog. The illustration depicts the legendary protest of Croatian war veterans in Savska 66.

Big psychedelic self-portrait

A self-portrait I started painting back in 2014. but never finished it, had some dilemmas about the background etc. After all this time I didn't find no other more creative solution but to simply finish it with a gradient sky, add some pink mountains. Hope its ok.. :) It is sort of the 4th painting in a series I did in 2009.-2010. named "Three portraits"
