Only 60 minutes away from Belgrade, stands Kovačica, a village of naive painters where you will visit an art gallery. “The pictures inside it present the rural reality, but in the poetic spirit. The painters paint the magical scenes from their childhood and youth, their environment, the local people during work and leisure opportunities in various villages, which are related to the habits and customs, deeply immersed in traditional folk folklore. This is the core of their artistic creativity, presented mostly in oil paintings, in which each was happily found his own thematic framework and artistic expression” – said one of the famous naive painters Jan Cicka.
