Couple of days ago Lonac finished his latest mural in Grenoble, France, for recently held Grenoble Street Art Fest. “Mockingbirds” was done in artist’s signature hyper realistic style and includes a portrait of his friend while playing an instrument.

Nicely composing the image within the format and the wall he was given, the Croatian artist painted the piece directly on the grey facade of the building. Cleverly utilizing the contrast between the spray painted colors against the raw concrete, the over sized image of a guy playing a banjo is effectively popping out from its surface. By adding couple of mischievous sparrows around the image, the artist achieved a humorous, almost surrealist feel to the image. Once again proving his huge talent and great painting skills, the finished piece carries qualities of a classic paintings blown up to a massive scale.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
