Banja Luka-born artist Zlatan Vehabović is a highly regarded contemporary painter living in Zagreb who won First Prize for Zagreb Salon 2010 and The International Association of Art Critics (AICA) Award 2010. In 2016 he participated in a one-month sailing expedition along the coast of the Svalbard Islands. One of the world’s northernmost inhabited areas, this Norwegian, polar archipelago is known for its rugged, remote terrain of glaciers and frozen tundra. During Vehabović's five-week stay he explored uninhabited coastal areas and abandoned buildings and settlements. His explorations were documented in photographs, the final 19 of which are presented at ‘Dark White Country’.
