A striking mural, measuring eight metres in height and four and a half metres in width, has been painted on the facade of the Belgrade Café, located in Irving Park Street in Chicago. This artwork, which was covered by the Serbian Television USA, showcases the likenesses of sporting legends Novak Djokovic, Nikola Jokic, and Ivana Vuleta.
The mural was crafted by Chicago’s own Ludvig Tanchez. The owner of Belgrade Café, a hub for sporting enthusiasts and especially fervent when these three world champions compete, elected to have the mural adorn the wall of his establishment.
“In painting this mural, our aim is to send a warm greeting from Chicago, signalling our immense pride in their achievements. They embody resilience, success, and above all, serve as an inspiration to all of us,” commented the management of Belgrade Café.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the only piece of iconic artwork at the Belgrade Café in Chicago. A few years ago, a mural depicting the renowned Nikola Tesla was painted by Venezuelan artist Ascend.
