Matej Vuković was born in 1995 in Zagreb where he graduated in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in 2021. He is one of the four youngest exhibitors who in 2018 participated at the 13th Triennial of Croatian Sculpture, which took place at the Glyptotheque of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb. He is the winner of the second prize in a competition “Ivan Kožerić” for young artists in the organization of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb in 2021.
With his innovative sculptures that he has presented at various exhibitions, Vuković has already gained a good reputation among art critics and the art audience as a talented young artist. His clouds, already recognizable for their various forms and dynamics, invite the viewer to observe them closely and discover new forms. These amazing and almost surreal clouds are changing their expression when viewed from different angles, spreading joy with their intense colours. His art is infused with quality, authenticity, freshness, and an exceptional talent. This young talented artist is definitely on the upswing of his career.
