For this year Seasplash Festival has chosen several of the artworks by artists and collectives from Croatia: Stefan Černi aka Steppa Art, Fabio Moscarda aka MOSCArt, EXE!, Stefan Jevremović and Nadan Sarvan aka Liganj, Zorana Unković and Antonio Hočevar aka Crosk.

Seasplash festival in its exodus edition will present four more artists of ArtSplash: Aser, Graffikon, Lulas Art te LuManArtist.

Aser comes from Mostar where as a child with a skateboard in his hand and sprays in his backpack began to create graffiti on the ruins of the city. After 12 years he still enjoys drawing graffiti, and with years his work has been transformed into the murals with hidden messages and painted in bright colors, trying to change the look of destroyed buildings in his surroundings. As he says, drawing is his love for the fictitious world of lines and memories.

Graffikon is a young designer who finished the School of Applied Arts and Design in Zagreb, Department of ceramic design. After school days he continues to engage in design not only in terms of ceramics but also in graphic design. So he put out his first handmade prints and designs for shirts, stickers, etc. For the past 10 years, he has been researching the form of letters in through graffiti art, and the inspiration for his works he gets from the sound system of culture within which he also actively participate as a DJ. As an artist, he has been collaborating with a number of domestic collectors and musicians, such as the 207, Arboretum Collective, Just Dubwise Radio Show, AmpliFyah Music, Volume, EducationTV… In addition to design, he is involved in painting interior and exterior.

Lulas Art says when he needs to talk about himself he always describe it in one sentence so here is what Lula Art does: “Production of anything and everything that ordinary person doesn’t dare to do. We are working under the motto that the dogs are the most honest and the coolest and therefore we refuse to grow up… as we don’t know how to bark”.

Hungarian light artists are back at the Seasplash festival, and this time it is Martinska’s turn to shine in most beautiful lights. LuMenArtist have been active since 2011., and many people have been fascinated by their visual decorations at festivals such as Lost Theory Festival, Ozora Festival, S. U. N.
