The exhibition of six large-format canvas paintings (150 x 150 cm) from the series “Comrade Tito Loved Art” was first presented in an imaginary gallery created in VR. The paintings were created by P of MP_art, between 2019 and 2023. The images feature consistently the same, albeit slightly modified, black and white portraits of the cheerful Tito with a cigar in front of recognizable historical art artifacts (Courbet, Monet, Modigliani, Picasso, and Warhol). This is a playful and somewhat symbolic and sarcastic commentary on the fact that Comrade Tito actually loved art… An integral part of this exhibition is the text/story related to the exhibition’s context.
