Bernard Simunovic is a Croatian artist and designer with an inspiring life story: in the early 1990's, Simunovic escaped the Balcan conflict as a refugee. Leaving his mother, his hometown, and his family; Simunovic interrupted his studies and came to Germany as an unaccompanied minor. He pursued the fine arts and became prolific in his techniques from classical painting to collage and sculpture.
Simunovic’s carefully crafted compositions frequently express a delicate sense of intimacy and introspection. A simple black line, the “thread of life,” run through and along clever color-blocking. In his latest work, Bernard unites the disciplines of fine art, practical design, and sculpture with unique compositions that appeal to both the creative and practical. Graphic paintings, carefully thought out with shadow and light, become sculptural. His artwork is characterized by impeccable craftsmanship; and a stimulating and unsuspecting complexity, drawn from the strength of simplicity.
