Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

TothemArt interpretation:

The love that gives you life.
We are complex human beings, different and sometimes difficult to define in words, but at the same time we are very easy to read. Self portrait is about your personality which is never the same. You are born, you grow and evolve so that in the end you are whole.

Artist Profile

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.
