If you take a stroll down Ilica street and turn right into Dežman passage, at one point you will come across a shop window so different from the rest of them, it will seem like you’re looking at an enchanted place. Welcome to the world of Saša Šekoranja.
Šekoranja’s a well-known Croatian artist and designer whose work never fails to amaze and inspire. Behind the window you’ll find his floral arts shop, but I never really felt the need to go beyond the enormous creativity displayed behind the glass. Šekoranja works mostly with flowers, but adds everything he needs to materialize his ideas: other plants, fabric, paper, wire, glass… the final result is never plain and conventional.
Even if you don’t end up entering the shop, you can just gaze for a while and enjoy something highly aesthetic. After all, in a chaos of shop windows filled with clothes, shoes, make up, books, food and other prosaic products, it’s nice to be offered a visual experience equal to a little piece of heaven.
