Vehabovic Zlatan - Untitled
2011 - Oil on canvas - 90,2 x 60,3
Croatian artist Zlatan Vehabović is likely the most highly regarded young artist in Croatia having won First Prize for Zagreb Salon 2010, The International Association of Art Critics (AICA) Award 2010, as well as an Essl Award in 2007, (Emerging Artists in Southeast Europe) 2010, and with a solo exhibit in 2011 at Lauba Museum in Zagreb, and inclusion in many important group shows.
Vehabović earned his Ph.D. in painting at the vaunted Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and he has taken the slow road embracing the great painting history of Western Europe where technique and paint application matter. These works up close are luscious, mature, and powerful.
