Milos Popovic is an academic painter who painted a mural of Novak Djokovic on a residential building on Srdjan Knezevic Square in Trnovo near Sarajevo.
As he said for Srna news agency, this was a difficult and challenging job considering that it is a portrait and the responsibility is great because the character needs to be authentic, Avaz news portal reports.
Popovic adds that the mural is eight meters high, and that it is probably the largest dedicated to the best tennis player in the world – Novak Đokovic.
“It took five days for the mural to be completed. The sketch was transferred to the wall through the so-called network, which was also used by old masters where they transferred their small sketches to the ceilings of churches, large canvases and thus received reference points,” explains Popovic, adding that graphic design students Đorđe Paštar helped him during the work.
Popovic says that the murals themselves attract a lot of public attention, so that on the first day, one could sense from the outlines and contours that it was the character of Novak Dokovic, which encouraged the entire team to continue their work.
