a young Romanian artist, currently living and working in Inotesti, Romania. I have a BFA in Painting from the Bucharest National Arts University, and I also pursued temporary fine arts studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design (GA,USA) followed by an Erasmus at the Ecole d'Art de Grenoble (France).
About my artwork
My paintings are usually the result of a fiery war, which I attend as an active spectator, and of the countless transformations occurring during work. What I often propose myself is almost meant not to reach a purpose. The importance lies in the creative process, but I must admit that my work is just as much about the finished product. The purpose behind my latest artwork –which is turning more and more abstract -- is to explore the expressive properties of paint and other materials through mostly physical and poetic processes, turning them into something edged with spirit.
I use very diverse materials, ranging from pencil, charcoal, pastels, tempera, gouache, acrylics, oils, to modelling clay, textiles, wood and metal .Aiming for a spiritual experience, my painting is governed by feeling, asking from the viewer as much intensity of inner life as I submit myself.
