We open a new exhibition in our museum!
After his presentation at the Juraj Šižgorić City Library in Šibenik, Neven Zoričić, the artist, painter and architect, presents his work here at the Museum of Wooden Shipbuilding in Betina. This time, using oil pastel and tempera techniques and motifs related to Betina and the island of Murter. The name of the exhibition is “Impressions”.
His first love was portrait. Nevertheless, at the Impressions exhibition he will present his work inspired by typical local motifs – ships and shipyards. The power of art in building the artist’s work is visible in the exhibited compositions. The constant balance between the artist and the observed keeps us close to Betina’s motifs. Nature is much more than just the space in which one lives and resides, and in this way the artist evokes it and creates a harmonious vision of the landscape he observes during his stay on the island of Murter.
Sandra Barešin, curator
Painter and architect Neven Zoričić Liburnus was born in 1960 in Knin. He graduated in 1986 at the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb.
In 1989, he went to study in Milan, where he stayed until 2022.
At the beginning of his stay in Milan, he attended the Brera Art Academy for two years. Parallel to this activity, he began a long-term collaboration with renowned Milanese architects.
In 2007, he carried out the project of a chapel on Lago di Como (Bellagio), which represented a great challenge because, in addition to the overall solution of the interior space and all accompanying elements, it also includes the finalization of almost all painting works.
In the period from 2010 to 2014, he worked as a professor at the Crafts and Arts High School “Giuseppe Terragni” – Meda (Milan) and from 2014 to 2018 as a chair for the preparatory degree at the prestigious The School of Applied Arts of Castello Sforzesco in Milan.
From 2018 to 2022, his main activity is organizing private courses for drawing and artistic design, and holding solo and collective exhibitions in Italy and beyond.
In 2022, he returns to Croatia, where he currently lives and works.
