One of the most beautiful murals of the year belongs to Croatian creative Lonac, who authored this masterpiece for MMSU Rijeka – Spajalica festival in his homeland. Titled Nitpicking / Pimplovanje, it is a breathtaking portrait of a man focused on the model of a ship. We honestly can’t stop looking at it – writes Widewalls.
