I was invited to attend Contempora's Ad Infinitum - 8th annual contemporary art exhibition, which will be opening this year in September. This May, a preview of the upcoming exhibition was hosted by City Forest festival at the University House, in Bucharest, Romania.
< About my work >
Title: „Outside the square”
Concept: The work has two components. The square form of the canvas symbolizes the limited space inside which the contemporary man is locked, incapable of being aware of the universe surrounding him, with his mind occupied with everyday life struggles. The second part of the work shows that we are our own unlimited universe, which cannot be imposed by society. When man will be able to perceive his potential, he can escape society's patterns.

The exhibition gathered 23 artists from various art fields such as sculpture, painting, collage or drawing. This event was a preview of the upcoming exhibition, which will be held in the same place this September. The theme for this 8th edition of Contempora is "Ad Infinitum" - to continue to the infinite, without limits.
