Summer 2013 updates

Hello, dreamers!

The exhibition I had in Offenbach, Germany was a real succes and for me it was a wonderful and exciting event. I met really nice people there. Thanks again to Daniel Schaaf and to all his friends for making it possible.

I finished the art studies at UVT

Another great news is that I finished completely my studies for the Master degree program I was enrolled at the „West University of Timişoara (UVT).

My Master's degree graduation project is "Carita Europeana", a triptych. The following 3 images make-up the project. Click on them to read more details about this project that took me almost half an year to finish:

The following works are paintings I did for the Master's degree courses since I last updated this blog:

Temple of love

The herd instinct

This is my song

The impossible capture

The following image is a virtual art installation I did in Cinema 4D, for one of the courses at UVT:

The tool of Genesis

The image below is intended to represent subjectively and in an abstract way, how I see the society and some of its minorities. I made it look very flat. The tools I used are Photoshop and Cinema 4D:

Other projects

"Dreams in contention" is a painting I did in my spare time based on a multitude of painting exercises I made during the year of 2012.

Dreams in contention

The following book cover was finished in late August 2012 for my beloved friend Michael Auerbach. Unfortunately, it took a lot of time to finish it, because I was very busy with the studies at the university. The project began in November 2010. This image is just the front cover. Due to lack of time, I did not get to do the back cover for his book.

Elia - Der perfekte Spiegel

I also designed a site interface. This one is for the "Agora University of Oradea", from Romania. The site was done in collaboration with my twin brother.

I hope you like the works I did since last year, when I updated the site. I wish you all the best!

My first exhibition: The brush in the head

Hallöchen!

I am very proud to announce my first exhibition! It will take place in Offenbach am Main, Germany, from the 12th to 14th of July 2013! About 40 works were selected for this exhibition. Thanks to Daniel Schaaf and the sponsors for helping me have my first exhibition. If somebody is around Offenbach or wants to come to my exhibition, I would be very happy. I will travel there to welcome the visitors :).

I've been very busy over the past year, since I last updated my web site. I made a lot of new painted images since then. I will post them here soon as well. Until then, you can find them in my FlickR gallery or in my DeviantArt page.

I also finished the studies at the university and the thesis for my master's degree in Fine Arts at UVT, where I specialized in Painting.

Summer 2012 updates

Marhaban, beoble!

I also made three site interfaces:

Three new paintings

Hello, possible readers! :)

I love painting and I find it fun. In the last month I finished three new paintings. I hope you'll like them as much as I loved doing them.

Antagonizing emotional turmoils

Fears and nightmares

Corruption of Eden

See you next time with more stuff! :)

Autumn 2011 updates

Hello, precious ! :)

I did not update for a long time already my web site. I did many works recently and I finally found the time to post them here as well.

I made three site interfaces: ICCC 2010, Point Clouds Library (PCL) and IRSCA - Gifted Education.

Point Clouds Library - web site

ICCCC 2010

IRSCA interface

The PCL web site is done by me using as back-end a free CMS named MODx. The initial version was finished in April 2011. The interface was updated several times, the final version, the one you can see, is from October 2011.

I also made a book cover for Ioana Dzițac and a logo for Uhuru Software.

Steps in Mathematics (6th grade)

Uhuru software

I made three illustrations on topics related to the future and robotics.

IROS conference 2011

Near future

Research in robotics

In my spare time I continued painting. I completed the following three works: Baalus Circus, Mad Rabbit and LSD Inception.

LSD inception

Since August 2010, I started collaborating with Daniel Schaaf, a German that makes various travel sites specialized for different audiences. I do site templates, which include the HTML and CSS implementation. I finally had the time, this week, to prepare and to publish on this web site all the interfaces I did for him. I already made a dozen, so in this post I will show just a few thumbnails, the rest of them are available in a dedicated page.

I hope you like my new works. :)

P.S. I updated my CV as well.

Early 2011 updates

Greetings people ! :)

Here's a quick update with my latest works.

I've done three book covers, each different and special in its own way. I hope you like them. I am now working on a new one for a friend, Michael Auerbach.

Mathematical probability and statistics

Advanced algebra for engineering and economics track

Steps in Mathematics (5th grade)

Since I got my Bamboo tablet I exercise painting on a daily basis and in December 2010, I decided to take the best ideas that stemmed from my silly painting exercises and to finalize them, so I can publish them. Here are my shy attempts in painting.

Summer hallucination

Incoherent bioforms

The departure

I also painted a Christmas greeting card which I missed posting here, because I was too busy painting the images I release in this post. I hope you guys like this one as well, even if it is late :).

Holidays greeting card 2010

And if all this wasn't enough, I also publishing a not so 3D image I made in 5 minutes, by mistake, in 2004, but I only finalized it yesterday. The initial image was a 3D render, but I worked on it so heavily in Photoshop that it is far from the initial one, just the basic forms and shapes are there. I also painted on it - to fix and "improve" details :).

Puzzled demons

Meanwhile, I worked more on various tiny projects, like designing site interfaces, coding in HTML and stuff for school. I am still aiming at finishing my new site in 2011.

Best regards to everyone and thanks for your time!

Experimenting with painting

Hello!

I finished two new images. In December 2009, I bought a Wacom Bamboo tablet to start painting. These two images are the first ones I did with the tablet. Both are just some exercises I did in order to learn to paint.

The latest painting exercise is "Remote village". This painting is done after a photograph I had from the village where my grandmother currently lives. The photograph was considerably much more different. After I finished manually repainting the whole photograph, I began improvising. I added two trees, a horse and another peasant. I also changed the weather and time of year. It was a clear sunny mid-summer day.

Remote village

The first painting exercise I did was to repaint and to add details to a previous sketchy image I did in 2008. The original image is "Love is a burden" and it is still available on the site.

Love is a burden [2010]

There's more to come. I still plan to do more types of exercises. I hope you guys like them. :)
