Riko Debenjak. Relentless Faith in Light and Matter

The book Riko Debenjak. Relentless Faith in Light and Matter has been published. It is by far the most comprehensive publication on his life and work, offering rich visual material and in-depth analysis and reflection on various areas of his art practice: printmaking, painting, illustration, as well as caricature and artworks dedicated to the public space.
The work of Riko Debenjak belongs to the most important achievements of Slovenian modernist art and is one of the pillars of the canon of 20th-century art in Slovenia.

The book is in Slovene and English language and is already on sale in our online store.
