Diana Munteanu - Love through positive sight

THE WORK IS BASED ON THE LIFE STORY OF MR. E (person living with HIV in Norway)

"The aim of the work is that each viewer, sitting in front of it, to imagine themselves in the place of the central character and follow their story illustrated through shapes and symbols - from the aspirations and efforts of the person living with HIV, to embracing the sense of fulfilment of finding a soul mate and starting a happy family. The basic idea of the painting is centered on love and acceptance; after all, the way we look at others is actually a mirror of our own self and that should encourage us to love more." - Diana Munteanu

Diana Munteanu studied painting for 3 years at the School of Arts 'Tudor Jarda' to develop her artistic skills and continued to practice painting as a hobby until she started to receive requests from friends. While at first she only painted for herself, along the way, she noticed that her work spoke to others and the feedback she received from outside encouraged her to create, explore more and make her presence felt online. The artist is interested in themes such as recycling/environmental protection, promoting sustainability through art and using unconventional materials for artistic purposes.

Hope - Bogdan Cazacincu

THE WORK IS BASED ON THE LIFE STORY OF MR. E (person living with HIV in Norway)

"The family portrayed in the first work with strong and dynamic contrasts actually represents the support Mr. E. had from his family. The support from the family is reproduced by those stylized hands. The agitated background and that gradient element represented as one of the central subjects, is actually the inner state of Mr E. The second painting, artistically, shows the disappointment Mr E. had towards his loved one, especially the one who gave him the infection. The next two paintings are about friendship and performance." - Bogdan Cazacincu

MURAL ARTIST OF THE GEOMETRIC SPACE OF CONSCIOUSNESS Creativity and the street art experience challenges the artist to experiment with different materials to create artworks suitable for living spaces or offices. Passionate about street art, in 2019, Bogdan Cazacincu is taking his MFA in MURAL PAINTING at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. CAZACINCU's street art works can be seen on buildings in Bucharest, Timisoara, Sibiu, Bacau, Targu-Jiu, Constanta - cities in picturesque Romania. The artistic area the artist approaches is a geometric space of consciousness reflecting the immutable reality of the world we all know. From portraits to abstract compositions reflecting the familiar features of Pointillism and Abstract Expressionism.

This signal exhibition is part of the project "When ContempArt helps social!" organized by Semper Musica Association. On this occasion, 15 Romanian and Norwegian artists will exhibit at the Creart Gallery 15 art works related to the difficulties and challenges of living with HIV in Norway and Romania.
