Nikica Jurkovic is a young, progressive artist from Zagreb. Although his work is most commonly mentioned in the context of painting, he is also, quite successfully working in other mediums such as printmaking, photography, artist interventions and spatial installations. The questions “What to do and why to do it” are the postulate of this young artist. He is interested in the heart of the issue. That is why his approach to the ideal and technical aspect of the work is foremost analytical. He is inspired by phenomena in his immediate surroundings which he calls Casual Fascination (CF/UF). He presented this theme last year in his solo show in SC Gallery, and then at the 5th Biennale of Painting at HDLU. He is present in every major art event, and this year in the context of Art Zagreb he will present works in the painting medium, which came to existence over the last two years.
