An appealing profusely illustrated volume of the work of Italian / Slovakian artist Zvest Apollonio (1935-2005), whose authentic and distinct oeuvre forms an indispensable part of Slovene contemporary modern art. The artist worked in various mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, illustration and mosaic but is perhaps best known for his graphic arts and printmaking. During his career he held over 40 solo exhibitions in galleries in Slovenia and internationally and was the recipient of more than 30 national and international awards.
