My work deals with the way we think and behave as human beings, focusing on mass mentality. I play with a large variety of mediums; my pieces cover a diverse range of expressions, starting with hyperrealist sculptures and ending with just a simple gesture that can be seen as a statement. I believe that my work does not only represent an aesthetically value, but can also be seen as an anthropological investigation of our times.

In 2010 I graduated M.A. in the graphics department at the University of Art and Design from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. After that I was selected as a resident artist by the“Hàbitat Artístic Castelló”, Cultural Center of Castellón de la Plana, Spain, where I developed and exhibited a personal project during 2011. In 2014 I presented my PhD thesis, graduating in the Research Program in Visual Arts at the same University. I am currently living and working in Frankfurt, Germany. In the last few years I have had various solo shows and participations in biennials, group exhibitions and art fairs: in 2015 I participated in Videozoom: Romania, Group exhibition, Museo di Roma in Trastevere, Rome; I also participated in a group exhibition, the Supermarket Art Fair at Lateral ArtSpace, Stockholm. In 2014 I exhibited at Multo Post Futurum -Very likely to happen in the future, at ALERT studio, Vienna Art Fair, Vienna. In 2014 I also participated in the Bucharest Biennale 6 – Bucharest International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Romania.
