"URAGAN" ship | Children playground concept - in occasion of "Rijeka city of culture 2020"
Illustrations commissioned by the creative agency "Benussi & theFish" for the installation named "Uragan" ship, Rijeka 2020. Illustrations I have created initially supposed to be a part of an installation - innovative, contemporary playground for children in the Croatian town of Rijeka, build around the reconstructed steamship "Uragan" on the docs of the harbor. Before it sunk its functions varied: it was used as a film set as well as a ship for geological research of the seabed. Upon the end of the restoration, Uragan is exhibited on the shore as a valuable example of Rijeka maritime tradition. Installation would include the ship itself and space- the environment around it. The main elements of the illustrations have been the sea life and children interact with them, in a fantastical underwater world! Final approval of the illustrations is still uncertain, due to the changes in the general style of the concept for the year 2020 - but they certainly will remain a beautiful visual record.
