„For many artists, the purpose of art is to inspire strong feelings. The successful work is what shakes. In other words, the purpose of art is the strong impression, the shock that strikes the art receiver.

Bergson in „The Essay on Immediate Data of Consciousness” wrote: „Art tends to impart new feelings rather than express them.”

I was born on 23.01.1989 and I live and work in Bucharest.
In 2012 I finished my masters at National University of Arts Bucharest, Painting department “Creative strategies in painting” coordinated by professor Cezar Atodiresei and assistant Alexandru Rădvan

In 2010 I got my bachelor’s degree in Painting at the same university, coordinated by professor Ştefan Câlţia and assistant Alexandru Rădvan
In 2018 I had two solo shows in Bucharest, one at Gallery, named “Man & Woman”, and another at EliteArt Gallery.

Two more solo shows I had were “Personaj anonim” in 2015 at Go contemporary Gallery, Bucharest and Oxigen #3 “Fragment”, SubRahova, Bucharest in 2013.

During University (2008-2009) I received a scholarship from the Margareta Principesa Foundation in Bucharest – Scholarship for Young Talents. I had the pleasure of working with two writers to make the illustrations of their books.

In 2014, I made illustrations for the book „Albinuta lenesa ” by Victorita Persa, Etonus Publishing House, Brasov, and in 2013 I made illustrations for the book ” Scanteieri de licurici pentru cititorii mari si mici ” by Mihaela Suciu, New Publishing House, Bucharest. So far, I have participated in three painting camps, one at the Oteteliseanu Manor (2017), and two at Chitila (2014, 2015).”
