Peternelj Mausar Jozé (Jože) was a renowned Slovenian painter and writer, born on January 12, 1927, in Jarčja Dolina. He was greatly influenced by the creative spirit of the 1930s, a decade marked by diverse political ideologies and the enduring influence of Surrealism in Europe, which eventually gained global recognition. This era witnessed leading artists integrating Surrealism’s concepts into their radical political beliefs, giving birth to a unique form of magic realism.

Mausar’s artistic journey was remarkable. He showcased his works both locally and internationally, exhibiting his talent in his hometown, Ljubljana, Škofja Loka, as well as in Japan and various other locations. His contributions were not limited to solo exhibitions; he also actively participated in group exhibitions across Slovenia and around the world, making his mark in countries such as Italy, the USA, Switzerland, Serbia, Canada, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Austria, France, Norway, and even the Museum Osnabrück in Germany.

Beyond his accomplishments in painting, Jože Peternelj Mausar was a gifted writer. He authored several novellas, each released as a standalone edition. Additionally, his literary prowess extended to publishing shorter pieces in prestigious literary magazines and anthologies.

 Jože Peternelj Mausar passed away on February 28, 2013, in Škofja Loka, leaving behind a lasting legacy in the world of art and literature.
