Miki Muster – exhibition of works
8 to 30 December 2010
Miki Muster is an artist whose comic characters have marked many a childhood and youth of the past 50 years. His name itself pretty curious, Miki Muster sounded to readers as if a comic character himself, therefore they had no trouble memorising it.
Miki Muster has earned a degree as a sculptor, but in his oeuvre he has been focusing on drawing comics. His famous comics include Zvitorepec, Trdonja in Lakotnik, now almost part of lore. Apart from making comics, Muster created commercial animated films (Cik-Cak bunnies, ads for Union, Fructal etc.) and animated characters (the girl wearing an apron for Gorenjka, Lino bear, Šumi opera singer...).
Undoubtedly, Miki Muster is a pioneer of Slovenian comics and one of the most successful authors in the field of comics and animated films in Slovenia. His creative opus is enviably extensive, yet marked by technical perfection as well as lively and diverse contents.
On Wednesday 8 December 2010 at 6 pm, EPeKa Scientific and Research Association for Art, Cultural-Educational Programmes and Technology opened an exhibition of works by Miki Muster in Naskov dvorec. The exhibition is on view until 30 December 2010.
