Toni Meštrović (Split, 1973) in 1999 graduated in Graphic Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, where he produced graphic arts, sculpture and installations. Thanks to his interest in electronic audiovisual media, he attended the Video/Digital Imaging International Summer Academy for Contemporary Art in Salzburg in 1997. In 2004, he completed a two-year postgraduate degree in Media Art at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. Since 1992, he has actively participated in group and solo shows, as well as video festivals in Croatia and abroad. Sound entered his artistic production spontaneously, as a secondary segment of video and film. With time he recognized it as his medium of expression, splitting it from the visual and devoting himself entirely to sound. In almost two decades of working with sound, Meštrović’s approach to the medium has grown more complex, creating spatial sound installations and compositions. He divides his time between Rijeka and Kaštela and teaches at the Department of Film and Video of the Arts Academy in Split.
