I am one of seven special invited artists/graphic designers to participate from 1.-7.10.2016 in a group show in Simhon Gallery, Jeju Island, S.Korea. This group show is called UDA Medaillons and I am since early 2015 one of international members of UDA director board.
My travailing to Korea is possible because of financial supporting by one Foundation in the Principality of Liechtenstein as also privates. For this friendly gestures I am very much thankful. I thank as well Liechtenstein National Museum and my lovely colleagues there for getting me free time for actions like this where I don't promote just myself but also always a little part of Liechtensteins art scene.
A very special thanks to info media who already informed about my participation (after Liechtensteiner Volksblatt there were until now as I know Hrvatska Matica Iseljenika and radio Voice of Croatia. Thanks very much to my wife Rajka Poljak and all other good meaning friends who wished me luck... Here on this site you can follow my experiences in Korea.
