In 1995, Andreas Berlakovich PhD (1932-2008) Austrian diplomat and painter described Krupa’s works with this words; »Drawings, and delicate translucent watercolors, transmitted to us concentrated expression of being, personality and things, just because they are limited to the most important, the line itself. And in the line Krupa is the strongest so far! Many great masters of art knew the expression lines. We think only on the nerve lines of Durer, or Rembrandt, or those of Piccaso, Miro ... I must say that Krupa works as his craft has been taught by them!“ 1997 – The chief curator of Art Pavilion in Zagreb Stanko Špoljarić writes the preface for his solo exhibition of paintings and drawings in Karlovac.
