Licensed in Graphic Arts, I'm a graphic artist based in Timisoara, originally from Bucharest, Romania. I draw before I could speak, sort of say, always fascinated by anatomy - artistic or not, both animal and human. Luckily I was guided by awesome professors since art high-school, developing my attraction towards illustration of almost any kind. I started computer graphics during university but not being part of curricula, just get ahead start in finding a job. Most of my time I worked as a graphic artist in mobile gaming but being a volatile labor market, I also activated in advertising. I've always run from making art my 24/7 only occupation/activity/way of living, simply because artists were/are considered a struggling branch, in other words, I never gave myself a chance to do what I really like.
What characterize my style/approach is the freehand creation, no matter if it's drawing, illustration or clay modelling, meaning, I create from memory and imagination without use of references. It doesn't mean I know everything but rarely I'm appealing to anything than my own source of reference. This way I have complete freedom to create anywhere, anytime, whenever I feel like.
From one thing to another, up until this year I had less to none contact with whatever I studied and actually passion me - drawing/illustration. I never stopped drawing, but for last 2-3 years I gradually dedicated more and more time to it. Usually I draw caricatures, graphic novels, illustrations and recently erotic or boudoir art.
I'm part of a small group of romanian graphic artists involved in historical comic book illustration initiative, my input has to do with the fact that I was old enough when the '89-'90 political changes occurred in Eastern Europe thus, being able to draw my memories from that time, so younger generation can use an extra help in understanding that part of our history.
Never thought I'd be inspired enough to do erotic art. It occurred by chance, as many things are, when I met someone who ended up inspiring me, to be exact, his physical absence. in other words, missing him led me to erotic art, in the form displayed on my portfolio. The mythological approach was both of our idea, also started from one of my first erotic sketches and in time, 2 different set of characters emerged.
Since my resume/activity had almost nothing to do with art and everything related to it, my exhibition activity and publishing is close to nonexistent, adding to that my introvert nature.
Just recently I enrolled as a participant to a show - London Erotic Art Exhibition, initially set for October, this year but postponed due to pandemic, for March 2021 and waiting for the December start date to submit for another one. Erotic Art is not seen in a favorable light everywhere, thus, exposure is often searched elsewhere than close to home.
