Football mania has officialy started in Dulcic Masle Pulitika Gallery last night, just one more day before Fifa World Cup starting in Russia. It's called 'Football in Croatian Painting' and this is the first exhibition to show how much painters have been inspired by football; so-called "second most important thing in the world".
In the period of one month, from June 13th to July 8th, in the Dulcic Masle Pulitika Gallery all interested will be able to see 25 works of 17 Croatian painters: from classics of Ivo Dulcic, Ljubo Babic and Omer Mujadzic to contemporary authors such as Tomislav Buntak, Boris Svaljek, Boris Bucan, Josko Eterovic and Grgur Akrap.
The ball and its simple circular shape with magical power attract millions of views of all skin colors: yellow, black, white; by wiping out every racial, social and national specificity, and playing football is a kind of social phenomenon pervaded by numerous emotional and psychological components. These strong emotional reactions attracted a number of fine artists.
