Šumski (Sylvan, of the forest) is one of those people who still consider a forest to be their home. A place of enduring inspiration, a resting place from the world which has forgotten the forest and moved into the virtual reality. He finds stories with his inner eyes and illustrates them with colours on paper. They are even visible to all those who only look with their external eyes. His illustrations, which are actually stories, are imbued with eternal inspiration and peace which he finds in these inner landscapes. The process of observing and painting his inner landscapes has encouraged him to set off on cosmic paths because he understands that he is nothing in comparison with everything and yet not smaller than the stars among which he sails on his space ship, exploring his own universe. This voyage is a quest for man, a search for the nobility of spirit, a pursuit of a game, seeking to attain new perspectives.
In his stories he dissolves our own concepts about ourselves, removes our masks and stirs up the fire.
He stages inner struggles which, owing to their own mantra inevitably result in the victory of the spiritual over prejudice, envy, fear, guilt, ambition…..
Beings possessing free spirit, which inhabit his stories, make us believe that our dreams can come true as long as we are open-minded.
These beings have various names, depending on the universe in which they live.

His modes of expression, both digital and traditional, are versatile and unconventional. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rijeka, department of sculpture. He is currently employed at the Puppet Theatre in Rijeka. A wonderful place where he can accomplish his aspirations. A place where children and adults, who haven’t forgotten how to be children again, encounter.

Street art, painting of the murals, is for him a new challenging field of performance as his works communicate with various profiles of passers-by. He has participated in numerous workshops as well as in solo and group exhibitions.
