    The Work

    Ivan Gracner is a phenomenal artist and a real hero. In his studio, which he and his wife have turned into a paradise of sculptures and paintings, one will immediately be fascinated by the two kindred souls inspiring each other.

    The first question arising after seeing their work is ‘which museum owns them?’

    After enjoying the couple’s hospitality one is invited to see the place where Ivan is producing his sculptures…. It is hard to believe that such a derelict place still exists in the 21st century, in a building in the capital city of a pretty big country. It was one hell of a place, with tiny rooms, smashed windows and walls with holes one can see through to the outside.  No toilet, no water.

    Given these circumstances, Ivan’s sculptures look even more remarkable. Each one of his works is made of one piece of wood, from a few centimeters to a few meters in size, witnesses to the unlimited energy and vigour Ivan Gracner exudes.

    Investment recommendation

    Considering the creative path, the process and the circumstances of the creation, the work is being sold at a bargain price. One will not only purchase a reasonably priced,  impressive work of art, but also contribute to the further artistic development of an incredibly talented artist.

    Marcotypie

    A block board is plastered with multiple layers of gypsum, silvered or gilded with Gesso Artistico and made visible through a spray pressure process. It is the realization of daguerreotype on today’s modern media. The resulting effect on the pictures is a diversified modulation and plasticity, which enacts with natural light incidence.

    The Work

He is using a special material for the ground, with a metallic, silver or gold base. A particular material is used for the substrate, which will be elaborately treated on a gold or silver basis as a preparation for the extraordinary visualization process of the photo.

    His perfectly lit, mostly large scale compositions are based on the Golden Ratio, and cover a wide variety of themes, from landscapes, still lives  and portraits to politically engaged work.

    Marco Pellanda’s signature feel and and look are easy to recognize in all his work which stands proof not only for a high caliber talent but also for perfect craftsmanship.

    For those wanting portraits it is recommended to meet with Marco Pellanda in person.

  • Sinisa Jeremic

    Sinisa Jeremic

    Biography

    Croatian Painter

    Born 1966. in Zagreb, Yugoslavia. Graduated  from the Faculty Of Graphic Arts, University of Zagreb in Graphic Design. 
    His work was exhibited in Belgrade, Bern, Darmstadt, Mondsee, Salzburg and Vienna.

    The Work

    Sinsia Jeremic’s work is based on one subject, his favourite topic, the one, that is most important and most crucial for him. This topic, on which he plays virtuoso variations, like the grand masters musician  able to modify and extend one pieces in such ways, that each new creation becomes a masterpiece.

    And just as we all know that Bach’s Goldberg Variations, can only be by Bach one will recognize a true Jeremic at first sight; even though his pieces vary from each other remarkably.

    When viewing Jeremeic’s paintings, it seems that he draws from the infinite. The reason might be related to the fact, that his unique subject matter is the most noble, most interesting and most beautiful one the world can offer – the woman. 

    For Jeremic, the woman is the center of all being. She is the source of everything and, most importantly, connected to everything else in the world. Given his focus, the artist has become one of the foremost experts of a theme within which he can create one masterpiece after another.

    Jeremic’s paintings are fine and noble, they are honest, deep and covered by a somewhat mystical aura.

    Everybody, who is interested in women should own at least one Jeremic – so literarily everybody.

    Investment recommendation

    The pieces are without reason reasonable and will rise in price significantly for the best of reasons.
