Hranuelli's opus with the choice of materials is connected to his to his home island of Brač. Sculptures made of stone in abstract forms and the figurative ones, most often depict women (Venus) and male figures, in a dialogue with tradition from prehistory through classical antiquity to modern times. Vitality and exuberance carved in stone, sometimes in other materials such as glass, whether it is a sculpture of a smaller format or a bigger format for public places are the characteristics of Hranuelli's creativity. He has been a member of HDLU since 2006. He lives and creates in Zagreb.
