New mural in Zagreb centre dedicated to famous Polish composer Chopin

A new mural dedicated to the famous Polish composer has found its home in Dežmanova street in the Croatian capital Zagreb.

This year, Poles at home and abroad are celebrating the 210th anniversary of the birth of Polish piano poet Fryderyk Chopin. To pay tribute to the memory of the great Polish artist and one of the world’s most famous composers, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Zagreb funded a mural starring Fryderyk Chopin. The project was realized in collaboration with Boris Bare – a Croatian street art artist. This is the reason why Chopin from now on will be watching you from the wall of the building at 10 Dežmanova Street.  The project “If the walls could talk (about Chopin)” is another example in a series of very successful projects that the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Zagreb has realized in cooperation with Croatian artists and institutions. 

“We hope that this mural will remind us of the great Polish musician for a long time to come and encourage passers-by to listen to the works of the great Polish artist.” said on this occasion Dagmara Luković, Consul of the Republic of Poland in the Republic of Croatia.
