Born in 1986 in Croatia, Ivan Blažetić aka Šumski is one of the leading Croatian artist of the generation involved into contemporary illustration and street art.

Šumski’s work can be found in myriad street walls, picture books, art publications, playing arts, music covers and animation movies. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany, and Croatia.

His modes of expression, both digital and traditional, are versatile and unconventional. 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. 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. Read Less
