Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

I made the painting after a photo I took in Guernica in 2019, I was there visiting, always take many photos of what I see. I am very interested in history, that's why I wanted to visit Guernica, war, bombing, Picasso, culture. The tree is a symbol, since the Middle Ages the Biscay used to gather under trees to take important decisions, the original tree was planted in 1512. I think the tree hold an ancient symbol and in this case was an embodyment of the "tree of life" archetype.

Artist Profile

Born: 1993

Hometown: Tunrnu Magurele

Based in: Bucharest

My name is Mihai Cotiga, born in Turnu Magurele, Romania. Living in Bucharest, Romania, where I have my painting studio. My paintings can be found in private collections in many countries like USA, France, UAE, Canada, Romania. Over the years I had exibited in solo shows and group shows in Romania and Netherlands. Since 2009 I've been paintings in oils and experimenting with various materials. Most of my work untill 2018 it's abstract. I explored and studied abstract expressionism, different types of colours and surfaces, oil paints, enamels, spray paints, oxides, canvas, paper, cloths and so on. I always painted to answer questions and to evoke emotion.

At first I started on Yves Klein journey to explore the imaterial so I broke my palette down to only three colours, blue, white and black, after a year and a half I started to introduce a few more colours but close to these ones. Slowly incorporating my studies in my paintings I started varying quite a lot and my paintings became a lot more intense. Themes that I explored are Space Exploration(interpreting the planets of our galaxy), a lot of writings that moved me like "Solaris" by Stanislav Lem, "Erostrat" by Jean-Paul Sartre, "The Hunger Artist" by Franz Kafka to name a few, also inspired by music such as John Coltrane's Stellar Regions.

At the end of 2018 I started figurative painting again, you can find some of my works in the linked sites at the bottom of the screen. The more recent works are a representation and interpretation of my life in images filtered by me.

I have an MFA in Architecture, create illustrations, catalogues, portfolios, posters and lots of other things, mostly creative related for a lot of years.
