Clara and I worked on murals at this years ŠKVER festival, organized by Dunja Jankovic, one of my favorite artists. ŠKVER is a week long festival that largely centers around international artists paintings murals in a local Croatian shipyard—artists start coming into the shipyard after the workers have left around 3pm. It’s an incredible project—Mali Losinj, where the festival takes place, is largely a tourist destination—lots of fancy restaurants and beaches. ŠKVER, organized by local artists like Dunja, is an attempt to have something else on Mali Losinj—something for the people who live and work on the island. Here’s a small sampling of the work Clara and I did, plus some images by other artists. Hopefully I’ll have more pictures soon—there was a lot of work done over the week.
