Statement

I'm an independent visual artist from Romania. My mediums of expression are mainly mixed media: painting, drawing, photography and video. As a visual artist, my analysis focuses on the XXI-st century man who defines himself as a complex being, free to express his own identity, always on the lookout for new experiences. At the same time, however, contemporary man is more confused than ever about his/ her identity and wishes, having been formed in a society that offers a vast palette of possible existential choices, yet imposes since childhood more or less directly „correct” templates of existence. Thus we find ourselves staring at a contrast between the promoted role models, what man really wants and what he actually is.
