Legendary Croatian poster artist Igor Hofbauer has created a book of graphic stories which are dark and visionary, based on a combination of classic American underground comics and film noir, pop art, German Expressionism, and Russian Constructivism. Hofbauer’s comics are often surreal and nightmarish stories in strange cityscapes that will be recognized by anyone who has spent time in the concrete housing and brutish planned neighborhoods of the former Eastern Bloc.
“Igor Hofbauer is the Charles Burns of the Balkans.” — Nina Bunjevac
