Bernard Simunovic plays with color, form and minimalistic lines in his abstract figurative paintings. His sculptured-like compositions, created with the meticulous application of acrylic, oil, spray paint or even paper (collages), make extraordinary art pieces. A simple black or colored contour line runs through his paintings and graphic artworks as a 'thread of life'. Bernard is interested in themes like intimacy, transformation, and connection of human beings and living creatures. The works are primarily distinguished by their complex simplicity. They are telling stories, sometimes humorous or sarcastic, but always stimulating a viewer to explore his/her own introspection.
