Statement

I'm an independent visual artist from Romania. My mediums of expression are mainly drawing and photography. I conceive my works as movie frames, parts of a neverending movie- which is basically my life-with all its essence: doubts, fears, feelings and visions. I want to explore the dark sensitive side of things that mark our lives both on a counscious and subcounscious level. Poetry is an important metaphysical inspiration for me, so I choose to use lyrics from poems as titles for my works
