Born in Gataia, Romania, in 1962. Self-educated painter, having exhibitions in Austria, Germany, France and Hungary, is willing to share his inner world. His paintings reflect his deepest emotions. "The emotion", he says, "is Art."He prefers the surrealist themes.
My exhibition record dosn’t include much, because I always prefered to work in silence, only me and my art.
I discovered my own painting and my own technique, I may say, because I have never seen someone painting for many years after I began to paint. Some of my teachers helped me through the way, I can mention the well-known painter Komisarsky who was of great help, in Resita during my 3 years studies at the Popular School of Arts. Back to the high-school in Gataia, prof. Lia Berghea had discovered my talent and has continually stimulated my ideas. Then, working in the psychiatric hospital, I really became who I am thanks to the great doctor Radu Ricman, former director, to whom I had many rich cultural encounters. He offered me the chance to expose in BURGUNDY, in Fontenay - La forge, in January 1993.
In 1997 I had an exhibition in Gataia, my home town, at the “National House”. Then, it was the private gallery Jacky Pitaud in Monbart, France who exposed my works, in 1997 -1998, a private famous gallery in Budapest,in 1998 and in 2005 I participated at a group exhibition in Austria at Obenwart.
The few articles concerning my art were written in the local newspapers:
–“The contorsionist of the paintbrush”,author: Sorin Moraru,in “Timpolis”
-“A great anonymous”, by prof. Herbert Weissman,
-“Gataia – more tempting than Munchen” by Claudiu Aldea
-“Choosen by the faith”, by Mihaela Stoicoiu
Also, some years ago I had an interview at the national television.All this helped me resist through the long years from the moment I quit my job, but believing in art, to nowadays. I reach to survive from my paintings, but very hard. Also, I lost much not being able to take good pictures of my paintings, because I didn’t afford to buy a good photo-camera.
But for me, art is something vital, I feed wit it, it’s something inseparably to my body.…Read More
