Atelier of the artist Dubravka Lošić
Located in the space of former Radeljević oil factory in Gruž, the Atelier of Dubravka Lošić provides art lovers with a peek into the mind and soul of one of Dubrovnik’s renowned contemporary artists. Housed in an industrial space, the atelier features some of her ongoing projects in which she combines several mediums and artistic genres: painting, installations and costume design. Discover the wondrous space where the combination of factory and art becomes a place for new encounters and flows of energy.
Flora's home was an art studio of the painter and benefactress Flora Jakšić, who gathered many famous artists. Villa was built in Lapad Bay in 1922 by the Czech architect Alois Zima and designed according to the direct instructions of the painter Vlaho Bukovac. Flora bestowed her atelier to the care and use of the artists. At the time when there was not a single public atelier, nor a space permanently intended for art exhibitions in Dubrovnik, this was an unrivalled gesture. Gallery Flora is managed by the Croatian association of artists of Dubrovnik that, as a professional association, has been presenting systematically for almost half a century its members’ work and introducing the achievements of modern art in Croatia and the world to Dubrovnik public, all with the main goal of promoting the visual arts and the dignity of artistic calling.
