Matija Skurjeni

(Veternica 1898 - 1990)
A naive painter who finished his house painting, the first works were recorded in 1923/24. and his first solo exhibition was in 1958 at the Gallery of Primitive Art in Zagreb.
Sensitive colorist and painter with small brush strokes, he turned to the world of imagination and fictional stories and dreams.
This is how one of the most authentic opuses in naive art was created, inspired by surrealist poetics.
He has exhibited independently from Zagreb, Paris, Cologne, Zurich, Milan to Zaprešić, where the Matija Skurjeni Museum is located.
