BERNARD SIMUNOVIC

 

Bernard Simunovic is an established Croatian artist based in Germany, whose works have featured in exhibitions, collections and prizes across the country. His paintings are marked by evident influences from his background in design, and boast a mix of self-contained forms that stand clear and simple as individual elements, but interweave with each other to achieve a more complex overall aesthetic. Simunovic's subjects silently interact as graphic forms; melancholy and irony, peace and threat exist alongside each other in visual clarity.
