Mug The Birtija
About the Project:
Be Hilarious / Bosnia and Herzegovina is a project which is made during the period 2012/2013. It is about drawings that on a unique and funny way describe Bosnia and Herzegovina, its cities, people, natural beauty and uniqueness. Bosnia is shown through the fable where the main roles are cheerful animals and the nature is full of imagination and colors. Each Picture tells its own story. The initiator of the project is Miran Hasibovic and authors are artists Zoran Zelenika and Maja Rubinic. The project has its own logo and is protected by law and registered in the Institute for Intellectual Property of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
About the Illustration:
The Illustration Birtija is the story of the customs and maternal relations that the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina have for the Birtija (traditional Bosnian tavern). For some is a meeting place of daily rituals, a place of socialization and sometimes little wisdom’s. For others, the Birtija offers a moment of peace with an unique ”holy trinity”: newspapers, coffee and cigarets. Traditionally, it’s a messy environment, where at the same time, are sinking and sailing the greatest human minds.
