Gromilović’s work is narrative driven and often inspired by folk-art, fantastic motifs from fairy tales, music, cultural heritage, as well as by his personal experiences and inner world.

Complex, but at the same time purified, strongly imaginative but well-thought-out works adorn this artist’s rich oeuvre.
