ZAGREB, Oct 29 (Croatia Sun News) – An exhibition of pencil on paper works by Davor Vrankić, a Croatian-French artist who is known as a “cartoon star”, opened at MSU. Vrankić’s largest exhibition in Croatia so far will be on display until December 22, 2019.
A selection of works dating from the beginning of the artist’s career in the early 90’s to new drawings premiered at the exhibition can be seen. A monumental modular polyptych, the works can be enjoyed separately or as a whole.
