Painter and sculptor whose works of Naïve Art were inspired by everyday life. His most important period was between 1970 and 1976.
He was employed as a miner before pursuing art. He was taught how to paint on glass by famed art pedagogue Krsto Hegedušić.
He was a popular practitioner of folk medicine. Patients came from far and wide to seek out his homeopathic cures.
He was born into a peasant family who could not afford to send him to art school. He was killed in 1991 when his home in the Stolnik hamlet of Donja Voća was broken into by two burglars.
He and fellow painter Marta Ehrlich were both natives of Croatia.
