My paintings fuse incisive, absurdist, or thought-provoking text, and carry an emotional charge.
Visually, the compositions are like an extravagant carnival where everything looks exciting and inviting — shapes, movement, and a frenzy of intensely vibrant colors all mingle together.
With the text, which comes as the last layer, I capture a slice of the blunt reality or the absurdities, peculiarities, and quirks I observe in my daily encounters.
From Being an Athlete to Fashion and Advertising to Interior Design to Abstract Painting
Making art is not just what you do, it’s who you are.
My diverse personal and professional background underlines my compositions.
I am a former multiple Romanian national champion in 100 m dash, and all the strength, energy, and intensity from being an athlete is reflected in my paintings.
I've worked in the fashion industry, and I've run an advertising agency; I love theater, and I've traveled to some of the most exotic places in the world.
Trained in interior design, I crossed over to abstract painting in 2013.
My passion, spirit, and personality melt together with my paint, and my artworks are an extension of myself — I am fascinated with people, with the huge range of emotions, feelings, and reactions we can feel and express, from profound pain and fragility to silly and entertaining superficiality.
The universe I create is vibrant, maximalist, and dramatic, and my paintings tell a story about what’s inside a human soul.
Born in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania, I moved to the US in 2005, where I currently live, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
