Famous British Cartoonist Trades In London Office For Croatia

Well known British anti-war and political cartoonist Leon Kuhn, who creates topical parodies in the United Kingdom, has been tracked down by local Croatian newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija, after it was revealed that he has made the Dalmatian city of Split his second home.

Kuhn has traded in his London office to work from the peaceful, seaside city. “They don’t know where I am, they only care that the drawings arrive in on time,” Kuhn said about his bosses. It was love that brought the 54-year-old to Croatia. Kuhn’s partner is a Japanese women who was once married to a Croat, and they have decided to pursue their love on “neutral” ground. For the moment the talented artist is dividing his time between London and Split.

In 1968, when Kuhn was 14 years old, he won first place in the Sunday Observer’s national political cartoon competition. He has also co-authored the book Topple the Mighty “about knocking down statues of unpopular leaders”
