Dan Basu

Dan Basu is an artist who works in Bucharest. His practice includes installation, photography, drawing and working with porcelain.

Dan covers various physical surfaces with textures that fluidly transition from symbols, to asymmatic writing or nonsensical shapes.

The structures and abstract imagery of these forms express indescribable thoughts and ideas and create order and harmonious color contrasts out of chaos.

Dan Basu is active in the community of artists at Ateliere Malmaison and co-founder of the Romanian Mental Health Film Festival.

b. 1991, Arad

Beaver

Beaver is a contemporary artist.
He studied graphics but is much more interested and preoccupied with painting.
In general, he paints in oil, but he also plays with other materials.
Thematically and stylistically, he is very diverse, either he works meticulously and realistically, or strongly abstract.
His ideational spectrum starts from baroque visceralities, goes through vulgar beginnings and ends up in humorous existential absurdity.

Daniela Virlan

b. 1987, Bucharest

Daniela Virlan

Daniela primarily works with oil on canvas, watercolor, and ink on paper. By incorporating elements from reality or symbols from the universal human consciousness, the artist establishes synergistic, symbiotic, or antagonistic relationships. These elements are engaged in continuous interaction with one another, generating a distinctive symbolic dynamism. The seemingly spontaneous forms, with references to elaborate realities, reveal a continuous unpredictability, a flux of surprising associations and juxtapositions: angels, birds, Madonnas, monsters, and figures caught in a Brownian motion.

Diana Oțet

I like to deal with simple and apparently banal objects, actions and fragments of reality, which obsessively pervade my thoughts, with fragmentary and seemingly commonplace scenes, which I represent in attempts to confer them a metaphysical dimension and symbolic meaning. However, my more recent works are attempts to reach a more sophisticated metaphorical, symbolic quality and to more compellingly affirm the importance of spirituality in our egocentrism burdened lives, as well as the art’s ability to offer, via fantasy and imagination, an insight into one’s spiritual quests and identity revealing challenges.
