Josip Tirik, (b. Zagreb), Croatian artist, Lost Generation, 2011

Visit his website. Some of his later paintings remind me of Kitaj and the earlier ones of Munch but he is very original.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    If I read Tirik’s work correctly, the unnecessary horrors of the recent wars in what was once Yugoslavia are justifiably and well-expressed.
    Don’t ask for whom the bell tolls, its peal may well come to a neighborhood near you.
