With masterful strokes of a brush and the deep, rich colors of oils, Mustapic brings his native land of Split, Croatia to life on canvas. A favored source of inspiration for this hyper-realistic painter is the middle Dalmatian Islands, where he finds boundless beauty in the authentic fishing villages and harbors of his beloved island of Solta and its residents.
The extraordinary weather and distinctive Mediterranean atmosphere of the area startle the viewer with their undeniably delightful presence. Mustapic has the amazing ability of capturing the atmosphere from a single moment in time, and conveying this onto canvas.
"What I find fascinating about Mustapic is his incredible ability to capture the most minimal details of every Mediterranean scene," said Christian O'Mahony, Director of Wentworth Publishing, and an exclusive distributor of Mustapic's artwork. "He has such a unique vision and sense of place that art collectors everywhere can relate to. His works invite the viewer to observe nature's beauty in the most serene and tranquil places on earth."
Mustapic's paintings have been highlighted in over 15 exhibitions in Croatia and Western Europe. His works are in private collections throughout the world while Mustapic continues to live and work in Split, Croatia.
