The Complex Simplicity of Bernard Simunovic

The simple black contour line – defining single or coupled human bodies – runs through all of Bernard Simunovic’s paintings. In his works, the face of a lonely smoker, the figure of a flexible dancer and varied expressions of love emerge amid bursts of colour.

Bernard (born 1974) is originally from Croatia. He studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
