“Dionysus” is the title of the newest piece by Lonac, painted during the recently finished Graffiti Na Gradele festival in Bol, Croatia. This large mural is another meticulously rendered portrait by the Croatian realistic artists depicting the “god of hedonism and street art”.

Following the relaxing vibe of the event as well as it’s focus on supporting the graffiti art, Zagreb-based artist pained his take of the Greek god of wine, ritual madness, fertility and theater. For this piece Lonac first made a photo of one of his friends adorned with laurel wreath, toga and a tray full of green grapes and spray paint caps. Using his impeccable painting skills he successful rendered the reference image to a large scale, transferring all the demanding light and shadow details.

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.
