IVAN PICELJ 1924 - 2011
22. February 2011


Ivan Picelj (1924 - 2011) was one of the greatest artists of contemporary Croatian art. Innovative geometric forms of his art from the 50s and 60s accurately predicted our time: the aesthetics marking the spirit of the epoch, which has occurred as a result of computer aesthetics. Ivan Picelj was co-founder of the two most important phenomena in contemporary Croatian art: EXAT51 and New Tendencies.
