BIO
I am an young independent fine artist, with a Bachelor's degree in Painting from the Bucharest National University of Arts in Romania. I have had 16 personal exhibitions up to today, in Romania, Italy and Great Britain, many national and international group shows and my works belong to private and public collections in many countries.
As a contemporary artist,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.
Nonetheless, my studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design, GA, USA, and at Grenoble, France, my travels and all my experimentations within the mediums of photography, video-making, sculpture,and dance interfered with my painting. What I am constantly searching for are modalities to master in my own way the relationship between nature and humanity.
