Hvar 21450

life made in Hvar


Living on the island all year round was a dream when I went to the University in the capital – Zagreb and later, when I got a good job in the neighbor country Slovenia’s capital – Ljubljana. Now, in 2017 it seems that the dream is fulfilling, I’m moving back to the most beautiful island and I’m excited about that.

Living here means I can restart where I once left and stagnated for a few years. It means that my atelier will turn into the prominent cultural spot on the main square with a few brand new contents. In the backyard of the Boras house, there is a cozy restaurant offering selected dishes and locally produced beverages.

What was good in the past will be featured also in the future. The artists outline-drawing attached with this page is Ivo Boras’s artwork he is one of the artists I admire and respect and I will present his new works in next season.

    Dear Iva,
    Two years ago we visited your shop/gallery in Hvar. We were traveling by boat and we were not sure iif we could bring the art work home safe and dry ;-). I still regret that: you were selling beautiful pictures of the Coratian sea. A few weeks ago I saw some photo’s taken by Igor Andjelic. And I think he is the photographer of the pictures I saw at your shop two years ago. Do you still sell the pictures of the sea? We really liked the three ‘wide’ pictures, they were hanging above each other in your store (over a meter wide, 40 cm hight). Can you help me finding this pictures or contacting the photographer. Thank you so much!

    Kind regards,

      Dear Ilse,
      it is great to hear from you again 🙂
      Igor Andjelic is the author of the photos you are mentioning and I will forward to him your e- mail while he has all the answers about the pictures you like ( numeration, dimensions, and so on)
      Shall you navigate to Hvar again? Hope to see you again 🙂
      all the best

    Draga Iva,

    sasvim sam slučajno odkrila ovaj blog i vidjela da živiš malo na hvaru i malo u ljubljani. ja bi točno to! prije nekoliko dana vratila sam se iz Hvara i već mi nedostaje 🙂
    Nigdje nisam našla mail ili neki drugi kontakt pa te molim, da mi ga napišeš. Poslala bih ti nekoliko linkova u vezi sa tvojom galerijom. Pozdrav, Valentina
