Vineyard

Last week an acquaintance commissioned me to do a facial lift to some traditional wine bottle labels from the vineyards of Moldova.

I took advantage and worked on my watercolour skills, using the ‘masking fluid’, which is fairly new to me. Here are my vineyards:

Hello Everyone

Hello everyone,

I am a young Romanian artist, currently living and working in Bucharest, Romania. After pursuing my fine arts studies in the quiet Savannah (Georgia), on the east coast of the United States of America, followed by a great encounter with the french Alps in Grenoble, I am now finishing my painting bachelor at the Bucharest National Arts University.

Over the years I have undertaken projects in many different medias and techniques (such as video art, photography, graphic arts, sound art, art in public spaces), but I am nevertheless committed to what one would consider being the “traditional” arts, mainly those of painting, drawing, engraving and sculpture. For the moment I am going back and forth between contemporary approaches and traditional subjects . My paintings are usually the result of a fiery war, which I attend as an active spectator, and of the countless transformations occurring during work. What I often propose myself is almost meant not to reach a purpose, and not infrequently I am afraid that if I add anything else, the canvas will be destroyed. This makes me think of something I have read in the notes written by an artist I very much appreciate, the italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti : „ This is not to realise the vision I have of things, but to understand why we fail. (…) I’m indifferent to the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful thing. A successful painting, a failed painting, a successful drawing, a failed drawing , this doesn’t mean anything. The failure is of interest to me just as much as the success.” I wanted to share this with you because it somehow states what I consider will remain forever my conviction, mainly that the importance lies in the working process, and not in the finality of the art object.That my art will change according to my life, and the different styles as well, trying to remain as sincere as possible towards my art.

Having that in mind, I let the paintings speak for themselves.

As a mention, all my artworks are for sale.
