Ivan Ladislav Galeta

arrow Ivan Ladislav Galeta is a multimedia artist, born in Vinkovci in 1947, currently lives in the village of Kraj Gornji, near Zagreb, and works in Zagreb. He is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb.

His works have been performed with extreme precision and are very perceptively intriguing, while at the same time indicating a certain metaphysical questioning. Galeta, searches for and finds inspiration in esoteric sources. He has been making films since 1969 and videos since 1975, while, since 1973, he has been exhibiting object-installations, photo-installations, presentations of expanded cinema, video and works for TV, texts, sound installations, spatial interventions, environmental projects and actions.
