Meet Boris Bucan


Boris Bucan is regarded as one of the most important artists of the contemporary Croatian art scene. During 40 years of creative activity his works have been exhibited worldwide and have won numerous international and national prizes and awards. At an early stage in his career he already received international acclaim due to his distinctive and unconventional posters. His method is to scrutinize and question all iconographic paradigms including his own. In the 80s he turned his focus to painting and drawing.

“Boris Bucan is an artist, who is moving in the field of imagination of artistic scenes like a hunter in the artistic sediments of the brain. Bucan knows how to extract hidden, unnoticed figures out of scenes, where we do not expect them. In his graphical work his flow has defined contours; in his paintings he is maximizing the expression of form through a reduction of the painting.

For the musician portraits in his sheets of the Philodendron, specie monstera deliciosa, he used this style with the related syntax. The portraits from Bucan are not meant as burlesque, there is no masquerade or ironical comment, as so often in the works of the artist. They are meant as a tribute to the true masters of art and music”. – said Margarita Svestarov Simat.
