Project "100 artists against the Coronavirus"
Wednesday, January 13, 2021
Dario Marenić is also the initiator of the Project "100 artists against the Coronavirus". The idea was born during the first lockdown when a friend and world artist, Charles Billich, complained to Marenić that the world situation was depressing. Then Marenić encouraged him to return to the easel and paint despite the situation in the world. He was accepted very quickly and within 3 days sent the works that became part of the Project.
The project involves Fortuna - ART Association of Fine Artists Zagreb, in front of which Ms. Karolina Bartulović with her preliminary work encouraged the inclusion of artists from around the world. Currently, more than 100 world artists have submitted their works on the topic of fighting the corona virus. The action is still ongoing, and world exhibitions are planned.
Elda has been supporting artists and publishing calendars for ten years, with the theme of electronic cigarettes and liquids for their filling.
This year, we published a calendar that used artwork on the topic of fighting Coronavirus.
Yesterday, we sent the first calendars for the year 2021 to all artists whose works are in the calendar.
Uroš Čalić, architect and painter from Belgrade, whose work adorns June, takes over his calendar in the Association of Fine Artists Fortuna – ART.
