Romanian born, he lives and works in New York
He studied printmaking with Tony Harrison at
Columbia University and he had exhibits in Europe, Japan, China
and the U.S. His work encompasses a wide range of techniques and
styles. He combines painting, drawing, photography, digital
imaging with printmaking techniques like: intaglio, woodcut,
aquatint, mono-type, and works in a variety of styles, from
representational to abstract. His imagery reflects his spiritual
explorations, blending European, African, Asian, and esoteric symbolism
in a highly personal visual language. He alternates figuration with
abstraction in search for a balance between ideas and emotions. The
latest development in his work has a dominant conceptual component and
explores more in the sculpture medium. Incorporating movement as
another dimension in his work, it materialized into a strong video-art
portfolio, that closing a creative circle becomes a source of
inspiration for new drawings and paintings.
His works are prezent in public and private
collection :Pfizer, Sony Corporation, Joyce Gilmore Mertz Foundation,
Art Lin YuNu Foundation, Pall Corporation, Romanian Cultural
Foundation, Queens Museum, Carcassonne Museum.
In 2003 he illustrated “Don Global suit pe cal” by
Andrei, Ilinca si Calin Mihailescu that was awarded the First Prize for
best childrens book by the Romanian Editors Association.

Government to the Peninsula Arts Festival for a series of lectures and

personalities, initiated and produced by the Romanian Cultural
Institute in New York in 2007 and broadcast by the Romanian National
