Boris Bućan was born on March 15th 1947. in Zagreb where he finished the School of Applied Art in 1967.
He enrolled into the Academy of Visual Arts in Ljubljana the same year, and continued studying in the Academy of Visual Arts in Zagreb where he graduated in 1972.
During his studies he started to delve into graphic design and attracted attention with posters for the SC Gallery and the Gavella Dramatic Theatre.
In 1982. Bućan created his legendary solution for the poster for Igor Stravinski’s “Žar ptica” ballet.
It can be said that he is one of the most successful Croatian artists in history, not just for receiving more than 20 international awards and commendations (many of which are Grand Prix) in 1984., but mostly for receiving the headline of the representative catalogue of the world-famous Victoria&Albert Museum in London.
Bućan’s works now reside in the most prominent world museums and galleries (New York, München, Essen, Melbourne).
At Venice’s Biennale in 1984. he represented the ex-SFRJ series of large-format posters for HNK in Split. In 1989. he participated in the Biennale in Sao Paulo, and in 1992. at the Triennale in Milan.
Since 1987. he has moved exclusively to presenting paintings and drawings.
Bućan presented his works on more than 80 independent art shows (Ljubljana, Edinburgh, Venecija, Sarajevo, Shanghai, Ankara, Zagreb, Melbourne, New Jersey, Copenhagen, Adelaide, Jerusalem, Dordrecht, Wiesbaden, Berlin, Osijek, Rijeka), and participated in more than 160 collective exhibitions both home and abroad.
He was the winner of the “Life Work” award of the Croatian Designer Society in 2006.
