Joseph Zbukvic, 1952 | Plein-air Watercolor painter

Joseph Zbukvic was born in Zagreb, today’s Croatian capital.

The political instability in Yugoslavia forced the Zbukvic family to leave their home and move to Australia.
Of course the education had to be abandoned.
A few years later the name of Joseph Zbukvic became famous, despite his parents wish to bury the talent of their son.
