Croatian artist Bernard Simunovic plays with color, form, and minimalist lines in his abstracted artworks, analyzing the sculptural capabilities of compositions with the meticulous application of acrylic, oil, spray paint and collage. Bernard Simunovic’s carefully crafted compositions express a delicate sense of intimacy and introspection.
A simple black line and clever color blocking formulates lyrical figures in transient states of delight, love, or contemplation. The simple contour line as a graphical element is combined with classical painting. Simunovic's extraordinary compositions are held together through the “thread of life”.

During the Balkcan conflict in the early nineties, Simunovic was sent away by his mother, leaving his hometown and family, and escaped from the war as an unaccompanied minor refugee to Germany. Simunovic began a new life in Germany, continuing his education in the visual arts and pursuing a successful career as a designer and artist.
Simunovic's artworks express his visions as an artist, designer, and sculptor. He unites these disciplines with the intent of creating unique harmonious arrangements. Graphic paintings, carefully thought out with shadow and light, almost become sculptural. His paintings are characterized by their craftsmanship; a stimulating, unsuspecting complexity drawn from the strength of simplicity.
