Alin Bozbiciu (b. 1989) graduated from the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca in 2013. Through his paintings, he approaches scenes from private space, placing the postures of portraits and pets in the foreground in order to suggest a state of unrest, heightened by the color palette and his personal stylistic expression.

A striking figure of the new generation of artists from Cluj, Alin Bozbiciu is the author of enigmatic and masterfully painted canvases that challenge our perception of images. His temporal compositions oscillate between private stolen-like scenes and mise-en-scène of characters from his private surroundings such as friends and family members painted through a juxtaposition of soft and wide brush strokes and the use of a light color palette that ranges between gray, light pink and beige tones that creates a warm feeling of dream-like, far memories. Bozbiciu’s paintings demand to be observed carefully in order to distinguish the motives and to reveal the devotion of their author.
