History of Art: the first solo show of monochrome painting in Romania


My solo show „Hierarchy of Light”, is the first and untill now the only monochrome solo show of painting in the history of the Romanian art and it was hosted by Elite Art Gallery, Bucharest in October 2013. The curator of the exhibition was a well-known art critic and writer, Corneliu Ostahie, who noticed that I have chosen the most difficult way of making monochrome painting, but in the same time the most provokative and successful in the long term. The exhibition was also presented by Prof. Dr. Maria Ana Tupan, from the University of Bucharest and the National University of Arts Bucharest, who pointed out the importance of the cultural archetypes in my art and the new and fresh vision and concept, the archetypal expressionism, I brought on the national and international art scene.

I used two fundamental colours for the Expressionist painters, yellow and red. It was a successful exhibition, two of the most beautiful paintings, „Text and Time 91” and „Text and Time 95” have been acquired by one of the founders of the biggest auction house in Romania, ARTMARK.

„Text and Time 91”, oil on canvas, 50×90 cm, 2012
„Text and Time 95”, oil on canvas, 70×90 cm, 2013.

SENSO TV made a short movie of this event, a turning point in my career as a visual artist:
