Lonac is a Croatian artist that earned recognition with his masterful spray paint technique and photo realistic murals. As a schooled painter, he is strongly influenced by classic art, which is noticeable in his work. From creating a reference photograph, prepping the wall, to adding the finest final details, he approaches every piece with absolute dedication and devotion.
Meticulous in execution and very harmonious in their composition, his murals are almost exclusively done with spray paint. Often based on his personal memories or observations, they are influenced by skateboarding culture, comics, graffiti, movies, music, as well as social issues. Along with dominating realist imagery, his works often features surrealist, often recurring elements.
– Lonac really masters spray paint, it´s amazing to see the shadings and the details in his pieces. I admire his photorealistic style which can make it hard to distinguish it from reality, but I can also find his smaller, more humorous pieces, interacting with the surroundings really interesting, says Shai Dahan, curator of No Limit Street Art.
– I love the way he treats a wall. It´s like the wall and the painting create some kind of symbiosis that is very appealing. With Lonac we get representation from yet a new country in our line up and I look forward to see what he can achieve in Borås during No Limit, says Stina Hallhagen, project manager.
