Cristian Avram nasce ad Alba-Iulia, RO nel 1994, dove vive e lavora.


Artista all'inizio della sua carriera che ha un approccio alla pittura molto vicino ad una visione classica. Estraendo i suoi soggetti dal mondo che lo circonda, si serve della rappresentazione della realtà come mezzo di investigazione delle possibilità che il colore offre nella creazione di questo tipo di immaginario. Con un acuto senso del disegno e della pittura, il lavoro dell’artista richiama in modo diretto la storia della pittura, lavorando come promemoria del suo prestigio e, nello stesso tempo, della difficoltà di questo mezzo artistico.

Cristian Avram was born in Alba-Iulia, RO in 1994 where he lives and works.


Being at the very beginning of his artistic career, Cristian Avram's works are more closely related to a classical approach of painting. Deriving his subjects from his surrounding medium, his realistic depiction of reality serves as a mean of investigating the possibilities that colour offers in building this kind of imagery. With a keen sense of drawing and painting, the artist's work recall in a direct way the history of painting, working as a reminder of the prestige and, in the same time, the difficulty of this artistic medium.
