    It's Finally Finished?

    This is oil on canvas, more as a traditional painting, but every gallerist....no, no thanks, we want landscapes with deers and this type of stuff.... Any thoughts? I belive I better turn to illustration....

    Wow I like these a lot. I think I see some influence from de Chirico, Dali and maybe H Bosch?

    Any story/concept behind these?

    I really like your work, really inventive and its abstractness doesnt disorientate anyone. I like!

    I love your imagery!!! Very cool! How do you think of shit like that?
    Don't get discouraged about the gallery thing. Keep trying, if it's what you really want. There IS a gallery out there that would represent you. You just have to find it. Heck, anyone can do deers (yawn), but I don't think there are many out there who can come up with the stuff you do. Don't give up!

    i like those but wouldn´t buy them yet
    keep working on your color and rendering.
    i'd say make sure you have concepts 'n stories to sell with em and keep looking for a gallery interested in your stuff, while trying to push the overall quality even further.
    having patience always will pay off.

    i'm trying to help, not to tell ya that your stuff is bad or something (it absolutely isn´t)

    wow,
    you dont need to go into illustration, you just need a better gallery.
    try NYC, i have seen galleries sell all sorts of stuff.
    there is a guy who uses the psuedonym McTwist. he does grafitti. i have seen galleries carry his spray can work.
    if he can find a gallery, you can find a gallery.
    try the soho area. im certain someone will bite.
    great pieces by the way.

    Definitely. Check out California galleries, too. There are a bunch of places in LA and SF where you would fit in.

    They're well made, but as art for a wall I think they'd distract too much and clash with most sofas. As concept art they are fun but they make my pretention meter explode.

    Certainly is a conundrum. I think you'd be good at illustration.

    Talking

    Thanks to all for your post and support! This site is really great !

    To reply to some questions:

    Francis: Yes, you can find the influence of more painters in my works - Dali, Magritte ( strange I was born in the same day as he, and I see thinks like him - but not easy to see that in the paintings posted here...don't know if are the stars or coincidence...)

    Dynamo: I don't really think in the first steps, I'm more possessed at first, the idea came, and after that is easy, just think to small details...

    Dan.v.D.:the problem is that I was indoctrinated... must agree the signature of STEAK-TRON: "effects brush is like a drug, it's not good if you use it a lot", your critics help, thanks !

    DSillustration and Elwell: I contacted the galleries on the Internet, unfortunately I live in Romania- you didn't knew that, left my address blank until now, can't simply get my paintings and search a gallery on the opposide side of the Earth....

    Jacobsteel: The medium size is 100 X 80 cm, I don't paint on huge surfaces.

    Immediatly thought of dali when i saw them...

    one of my favorite painters too...

    First works best for me. I would indeed add a few extra details to some of the big areas like the wall our sky in the other works. Or actually keep it in mind for future works.

    Keep posting on the boards

    I think these are wonderful. Vintage surrealism, and yet fresh and modern as well. I wish you were here in Philadelphia--there's an exclusive Dali retrospective going on right now. My wife and I are finally going to get to it this weekend.

    I agree with Elwell and DSillustration. I realize you're in Romania, but there are quite a few galleries in Philadelphia who would jump at this--SPECTOR, the Roger LaPelle Gallery. I hope there's at least a possibility that you might be able to show your work on our side of the ocean

    By the way--to the NYC crowd, there's a new gallery (I think in Chelsea) that used to be here in Philly. Great stuff--Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Dave Cooper, Joe Sorren, lots more. Look here: www.jonathanlevinegallery.com/

    Very cool

    I get the feeling though, that they look 10 times better in real life.

    Actually I think you should go into illustration. I honestly don't know how the whole gallery scene works, but I would imagine shipping and insuring art from Romania to New York or any other US city would be quite expensive. Some artists like Kent Williams do just fine in both galleries and as an illustrator.

    But doing freelance editorial illustration, you could do it from anywhere. I can easily see your work fit right into the Society of Illustrators crowd. You should try to contact some of those artists to see what their thoughts are. Donato floats around these forums and he is a member of SOI. Get that Artist's Market book and start sending out samples maybe. Or try to find an art representative here in the USA that can get you editorial jobs, book covers, etc.

    Shit, this is some really good stuff.

    The titles of your works are great they really help one to get the right felling.
    Keep it up. I hope to see more of this great stuff.

    I think you could fit in good in both illustration and galleries.

    I sell them for 200 - 300 $ on eBay. I'm not the most inspired seller at all, but in my country the life is cheap, so isn't so bad. But I'm open to any suggestion..........
