Acylic on Canvas
About the piece
About the artist
I was born in Romania in a period of time when invisible walls were higher than the real, visible ones. I was raised in communism and my imagination was my only escape at the time. Through my paintings and drawings, I grew wings.
Today I live in Illinois, few miles away from Chicago and I still like to “fly”, from time to time.
My style is a self taught one and it does not follow any rules.
From the very first touch of my brushes and palette knifes until the last, my paintings are a continuous game of colors and shades. I enjoy giving depth and texture to the stories I put on my canvases, and therefore I combine all kinds of medium pastes, gold powder and metallic colors. The subjects I choose are reflexions of the connections I have with Nature, and sometimes, human nature as well.
