Project Description

Julian Bisericaru

Julian Bisericaru


Iulian Bisericaru lives and works in Sibiu and Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He is presently a PhD student at the University of Arts and Design in Cluj researching through painting the connections between ecology and utopian architectural theories.

The artist creates complex compositions where he expresses the tensions between the natural and the artificial in figurative contexts and lyrical abstractions. Germanic Romantic influences resonate strongly in Iulian Bisericaru’s works, inspired by the surroundings of Sibiu (Hermanstadt). While his painting is shaped by the Cluj art school, the artist quickly shifted from its influences in order to create his own distinct compositions. Bright and daring colour screens come together in multiple visual languages into one painting. In his latest series exhibited during Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, Iulian Bisericaru playfully extends his references to abstract-expressionism, especially towards Motherwell, or otherwise impressionist brushstrokes towards Degas or Monet, creating captivating and unexpected worlds.
