“The City Gallery Ljubljana hosts a retrospective exhibition of Sitar’s comic book Under the Red Star. Eight masterpieces of engaged comics put on view in as many rooms.”
“Feeding his reflections and interpretations on imagery, Iztok Sitar is one of the most important comic book authors in Slovenia. Through pictures, comics and precise composition, he communicates with his surroundings using a compelling artistic language, which also conveys his personal view of the world.”
“The City Gallery Ljubljana has organized a retrospective exhibition of engaged comics by Iztok Sitar, an illustrator, a caricaturist and comic book author, who published his first comics in the Orwellian 1984, as he likes to point out.”
