Boris Bucan (Zagreb, 1947) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb in 1972. His artistic practice includes drawing, graphics and graphic design. He pays special attention to the issue of the anonymous media message which he personalizes through humorous interventions in the template (Bucan Art, 1971). At the start of his career, he created posters for the Student Center in Zagreb (Galerija i Teatar ITD – Gallery and the ETC. Theatre) and Dramsko kazalište Gavella (Drama Theatre Gavella) (1967-1972). Between 1980 and 1982 he created a famous large-sized poster series recognized for their picturesque quality for HNK (Croatian National Theatre) in Split, and for the concert program of Radio-televizija Zagreb (Radio-Television Zagreb). After the series was exhibited at the 1984 Venice Biennial, Bucan earned international fame.
