Born in 1975, in Targu -Jiu, lives and works in Timişoara.

1999-Present, teacher at the Faculty of Arts and Design, Timişoara, currently lecturer Ph.D., Painting specialization.


My artistic activity reflects a divergent, experimental vision, where the freedom to put my ideas through by means of various media, such as installation, object or photography does not go against the classical methods of drawing or painting, becoming, instead, an opportunity for transdisciplinary investigation, the material support of obsessive questions.

My approach is aimed at social issues, such as perception and the influence the environment has on humans, the analysis of their behaviour, visible in urban areas, ars poetica approaches, questioning the influence of art on the social context or focusing on the need to build an individual step-by-step exercise which will enable me to define myself in relation with the world. Thus, I am interested in transmediality, which capitalizes on the universal complexity, the multiple flapses of existence in search of the connections between various levels of reality, the proof of a coherent articulation of the world.
