“I was born in '89 and I'm from Iași, Romania. I always seem to have expressed myself artistically, or all I did was leading me to art, in high school however things have become complicated because I have discovered poetry, the great classics of literature and then philosophy soon followed.
As for a formal education I have none, I am self-taught, I applied at the University of Arts in Iaşi, intending to study photography, I entered but withdrew my application before the beginning of the academic year and I studied history instead, only for two years and a half, because I decided to dedicate myself totally to painting and writing.
Because I found the writing more and more extenuating, I turned my attention slowly to painting, fascinated at first by the old masters and ancient art, then falling in love gradually with abstract expressionism, which was my gate way drug for contemporary art.
After this shift from figurative to abstract art followed a period when I experienced a lot, I found myself getting more and more attracted to installation art and performance, while making more and more photography, which somehow came to be the biggest part of my artistic practice for the last year or so.”
