VLADIMIR MAKUC

After graduating from the Academy of Visual Art in Ljubljana in 1954 and finishing postgraduate studies in restoration in 1964, Vladimir Makuc (1925, Solkan – 2016) dedicated himself mainly to graphic art at the beginning of his career. Until 1960, when he went to improve his art at Johnny Friedlaender’s art studio in Paris, he mostly worked in the technique of woodcut, and he later also created etchings, aquatint and relief prints. Afterwards, he also engaged in painting and sculpting. As one of the most important representatives of the Ljubljana Graphic School, he developed a distinctly original, personal poetic style in the visual language of high modernism with a refined artistic expression and became one of the most important interpreters of the peculiarities of the Istrian-Karst landscape from which he originated.
