Born in 1949 in Pula, Croatia. Lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia.

Since 1975 Goran Petercol has been exhibiting works concentrating upon processualism, scopes, stylization and subversion of the purity of conceptual structures. He started with his first light installation as early as 1985, treating light as a material and shadow as a smaller amount of light. Petercol works with material and intangible forms, spaces and interim spaces, spontaneous and controlled art treatment deal above all with the problem of creation itself.
