Artist Transforms an Old Boat into a Fish

May 11, 2017

Back in 2012, Croatian artist Lonac found an old boat laying in a nearby forest and transformed it into one of his signature fish characters. Five years later he decided to repaint the boat, but this time capture the entire process as an animation.

In addition to hyper realistic murals, Zagreb-based artist has been know for his fishbone sculptures made from discarded skateboards. A couple of years ago he extended the concept onto an abandoned boat creating the "(Un)natural Habitat" installation. He recently spent couple of days repainting the nicely weathered boat and created an effective animated gif from it. Lonac told us he plans on going back to the secret spot every couple of years and continuing this personal mission. —Sasha Bogojev
