WELCOME TO THE ARTFOLIO OF IVAN BLAŽETIĆ - ŠUMSKI

 

I believe that art is in essence a process of sharing. By establishing common ground of our shared experiences, I want my work to play a role in allowing people to become flexible in their perceptions of reality outside of any tradition. Art have the capacity to impart a sense of empowerment and to connect people through compassion and empathy. I work in a variety of mediums in order to do this. Murals, paintings, and illustration all reach people in different ways, but each one of them has the ability to tell a story. A narrative element is the common ground of my work.”

 

Infinite Adventures in Surreal Worlds

 

 

Šumski made cover art for electronic music labels and set up installations at festivals such as the Ozora Festival in Hungary. In addition, he worked with the band Crystal Fighters on number of videos.  His murals can be seen in Berlin, Zagreb, Trondheim, and other cities. As an illustrator he has worked for Nike, New Scientist, Affinity Designer for iPad, and Igapa, the biggest supplier of paper in the E.U. His illustrations have also been exhibited extensively in galleries like Factory Fifteen in London, and the Urban Spree Gallery in Berlin. He grew up in Rijeka, Croatia and currently lives in Berlin.
