Croatian artist, painter and illustrator, Miron Milic, recently spent couple of days painting a new mural on an old building in the very center of Rijeka, Croatia. Invited by the local Museum of Modern art, his work is part of their program that is promoting art projects in public space.
For this piece Zagreb-based artist picked an image that shows the evolution of humans through portraits of our unknown and unnamed ancestors. In his signature style, he approached the working surface as a piece of paper, painstakingly working his way over the cut out inside walls of the building. The idea behind the work was to point out the temporariness of time, which was partially influenced by the building itself. Situated in the very center of the city, surrounded with modern constructions, this building was once a part of the old town and now it’s just a separated ruin in the middle of a outdoor parking lot. As usual, Milic wrapped up the piece by adding a witty text saying “Ima vremena/There’s time”.
