Kobal is a painter of landscapes that can be vividly imagined but not experienced physically. Of impossible buildings that are seen but cannot be entered. Of atmospheric clouds turning into mists. Of spaces floating in the abyss of the mind. Everything is in complete silence perhaps or in droning echoes of memories. He is a painter of visions that are propelled gently and intimately, yet are powerfull mentaly and spiritualy.
Born in 1962 in Koper. He graduated and completed his masters studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana. In 2016 he received the Prešeren Foundation award, the highest national honor for artistic expression in Slovenia.
