Design professor’s work featured in Russia exhibit

Five works of art by Dejan Mraović, assistant professor of graphic design and coordinator of Campbell University’s Graphic Design program, were included for the 3rd Creative Bridge international exhibition of design and visual arts in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Mraović’s logos for Wade Driving School in Oklahoma, Rotosun portable solar panels in Hungary, Sheesh Mahal Pakistani Restaurant in Oklahoma City and Cornerstone United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City — in addition to a poster for the Red Dirt International Film Festival in Stillwater, Oklahoma — were chosen for the exhibition, which ran from Aug. 3-27 in the Novosibirsk State Museum of Local History and Nature.

Creative Bridge is a large project that includes a series of exhibitions, cultural and educational events, which helps to build creative communication between representatives of creative professional communities of different countries, and also contributes to strengthening friendly relations in the field of art, culture and education,” Mraović said. “It featured artwork from Australia, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, South Korea, USA, Uzbekistan and Russia.”

The first edition of Creative Bridge was held in Moscow, while the second was held in Seoul. The exposition was organized in collaboration with the International Academy of Design from Moscow, Institute of Arts of Novosibirsk State Pedagogical University and Hongik University from Seoul. The jury consisted of art professionals from Moscow, Novosibirsk and Seoul.
