The inspiration for this painting come from a distant memory from my childhood when I was attending a pottery class, I remember the feeling of seeing new objects born, the textures the smell of clay. It is like a steel life but also a universe of many hidden worlds.

I was born in 1979 in Brașov.  Graduated at the painting department of the George Enescu University of Arts in Iași in 2009, and in 2014 obtained a master's degree in painting at the same institution.
During  university studies, - fed up and disgusted by the amazingly detailed, daring but in many cases sterile and self-repeating visual world of hyperrealism (the continuation pop art's cold spirit of alienation and irony) - obtained an Erasmus scholarship to Bilbao, Spain. This scholarship projected me in an environment where my flickering desire to flirt with abstraction, which could not unfold completely and freely within the boundaries of my home university, suddenly gains space due to the open and experimental environment I find there. As a result of this time, impressions, experiments and experiences in Bilbao, my curiosity guided me towards new territories to explore. Thus, my main support in the search for a new path was represented by the work of artists such as Manolo Millares, Antoni Tápies, Alberto Burri or Mark Rothko - to name a few - works whose world and spirituality was closest and suited the most, and blended better with the world of my soul.
