|I was always irresistibly attracted by the arts and I began to sing, paint and play instruments from
an early age, in my native Transylvania. My teachers and family encouraged me to begin studying
at a musical school but I continued to be attired by drawing and painting and, a few years later, in
high school, I switched to the fine arts, For the rest of my life, music and fine arts intertwined in
I graduated from the National University of Arts in Bucharest - at that time a six years classical
university program, including drawing, painting, sculpture, design and art theory classes. In
parallel, I was passionately continuing my musical education in the concert halls.
Those were the days... Soon after graduation, I left the communist Romania.
My first solo show was mentioned in a prestigious magazine but I was disappointed about how my
work was misunderstood by an art journalist I never knew. This was my first warning about the
outsiders the art world is full of.
Settled in Canada, I completed my knowledge of art theory and got a Master Degree in Art History
at the Université de Montréal.
Gradually, I became detached from the physical object, and I left my sculptures to disintegrate in
the nature, like an old chapter of my life. A new chapter started with the digital image processing,
by the end of the last century. This change allowed me to bring back what I felt was missing in my
vocabulary - the music world. Long before reading the recent studies, I felt that the music is the
human activity that stimulates most areas of the brain and actually trains them all. I don't compose
music but I bring in other musician's creations to inspire and structure my visual art.
I needed an alternative space to present my work without the limiting institutional and commercial
constraints of a gallery. Web exposure became the permanent and exclusive media, where my
projects are shared with the world. Other than this site, I expose my work on Vimeo, Instagram
To me, art is a way of life, not a career. "Ghost artists” as myself are minimalist communicators,
manifested publicly only by their creative concepts. My art focuses on the essence, the inner
world. It's an enhanced, "augmented reality".
I am presenting my creations by combining music, visual arts and technology.
