On the 28th of July at 9 p.m. the St Thomas Gallery in Rovinj will host the opening of the exhibition titled «Trenutak» (Moment) by the academic painter Danilo Dučak.

Dučak was born in 1953 in Zagreb, where he graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts in the class of professor Reiser. In 1973 he became a member of the Zagreb «Fotoklub». Very early in his career he put on two solo exhibitions (Graz, 1974, Zagreb, 1976), which caught the public attention by the avantgarde approach to photography. During the 1970’s he worked at the «Polet» magazine, actively presented his works at numerous exhibitions and won several important prizes. He started to engage in illustration in the 1980’s.

In 1988 he moved to New York (USA), where he built a successful and lucrative career by designing the covers of books and became one of the leading American illustrators. He has returned to Croatia after 18 years of absence and currently lives and works in Zagreb and Motovun.

At the last year’s «Grisia» (outdoor joint exhibition) in Rovinj he won the first prize for his booklet of drawings in the manner of the earliest representations of Rovinj.
