Croatia’s Eurovision 2018 representative Franka and her entry Crazy have been immortalized by artist Marko Barišić.
The Crazy-artwork by Marko Barišić is the largest drawing of his Black Series, created with white pastel and chalk applied to black paper.
Marko Barišić, a self-taught Croatian artist living in northern Bosnia, was inspired by Franka Batelić and her ESC 2018 entry Crazy. The rhythm of the song seems to fit Mako Barišić’ flowing style, creating an image that is both realistic yet conveying an almost dreamlike fluidity.
