​​​​​​​Relying on the idea of ​​chance, of total experiment, on the tensions between abstract and figurative, between identification and disappointment, I created images whose chaotic result from a visual point of view is synonymous with the events of the world around us. I used completely recycled materials, which I recontextualized by throwing on the work surface, in a purely Dadaist gesture, randomly cut elements from newspaper scraps, colored paper, advertising posters. From the very beginning, the process is intentionally distanced from the traditional norms of using color, composition and choice of the subject, precisely in order to be able to understand the total freedom of visual expression. The work is part of a series called Bize and was exhibited at the Blue Biennale, Romania in 2019

I am a Romanian born visual artist with a focus on abstract, conceptual and experimental art. I hold a BA in Photography and Time Based Arts @National University of Arts Bucharest. I am interested in aspects of existence, often I find myself exploring territories of personal and social phobias and their effects upon the psychic.

My art is eclectic in a way that shows my openness to the world and my interest in different mediums. I am exploring the surrounding realities and expressing my own views on them using photography, collage, painting, illustration, film, installation, dance and even new media art. As an artist I am constantly working on my skills to better understand myself, and my art and eventually to send my message to world.
I am the co-founder of the NUNU collective, which is an alternative group of artists and free thinkers actively participating and creating neo-dadaists actions that critique today's trends in society.
Besides my art practice, I am interested in discovering fresh artists that have a strong word to say, so I have created an on-going program to showcase them. It is called Artist in Studio and it contains, as the name suggests, interviews with artists from their studio.
