Painter and graphic artist Floris Oblak was born in 1924 right here in
the city of Vrhnika. Visitors can
admire his work at the permanent exhibition, which is located at the seat of
the Vrhnika Museum Association at Tržaška cesta 23.
Oblak graduated in 1948 from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in
Ljubljana and then studied until 1951 at the graphic school under Božidar
Jakac. He worked as a freelance artist. In the early period of his work his art
was more stylized, though still within the limits of reality. Later, his work
became more realistic and detailed, colors more translucent and compact. In
more recent works, he devoted his attention to special motifs of sarcophagi and classical still lifes. Oblak has exhibited in several solo exhibitions both at
home and abroad.
