Lucian Szekely-Rafan

Lucian Szekely-Rafan

Born: 1975

Hometown: Medias

Based in: Cluj-Napoca

With over two decades of experience, Lucian dedicated his passion to mastering his technique.

This shows in his works, all of them have a vivid pallet of colors and emotion, never missing the natural element. With a pen and paper, Lucian defines his work through the styles of lowbrow, pop surrealism. All of his work are mixed media.

Artist statement:

Every artist transforms the world around him the very moment it is reflected in their retinas, thus, in every work. Only the world is so nuanced that a single type of material is not always enough to capture its essence. In this sense, I have explored multiple avenues: engraving, charcoal, painting (even if less than others), and lately, jewelry.

I propose a reconsideration of the portrait, combining the Renaissance classicism, the Boschian strangeness/eeriness, and the surreal hermeticism in a formula that curbs the aesthetics of ugliness.

The decomposition of this portrait recalls a time of isolation of the being in its own carcass - an age of uniformity, of lacking personality. Despite these inadequacies, art manages to guide the eye of the viewer to the decryption of beauty.

The new concept opens, in fact, a bridge between traditional graphic art and jewelry. The latter thus loses its purely decorative status, describing rather an attitude, a vision, an idea.
