Boccanera Galery has the pleasure to announce its participation to ZⓈONAMACO 2020 with a solo show by Cristian Avram (Alba-Iulia RO in 1994). 

Cristian Avram's works are closely related to a classical approach of painting. The artist draws from his experiences that have walked in his mind, and through the colour, he creates dimensions that live between an unfinished past and a future to be discovered.

Avram grew up in the countryside near Alba-Iulia, in the middle of Transylvania, and in those places he observed a world of contrasts between rural life and the post-Soviet imagery. Through his studies at the prestigious Academy of Painting in Cluj Napoca, in the art capital of Eastern Europe, he was able to interpret his vision of contemporary painting, broadening the narrative of human experience that is painted through a formula of analysis.

His representation of reality investigates the possibilities that colour offers in the construction of the personal and collective imaginary. For Avram, the canvas is a place of relationships: between colour, shapes, and everyday life. And it is in this relationship that colour dominates powerfully. The complex dialogue between tones and lights take on meaning in an overall organic relation.

Cristian Avram explores the collision between the inner and outer world, an oxymoron that raises a sense of immemorial undated time that hides places of the soul. He wants to probe the possible alterations of the environment: tangible and immaterial, private and social.

Cristian Avram was born in Alba-Iulia (RO) in 1994, he lives and works in Cluj-Napoca. Cristian Avram's works are closely related to the classical approach of painting. He selects his subjects from the world around him, and he uses the representation of reality as a tool to investigate the possibilities offered by color in the creation of his imaginary. With a keen sense of drawing and painting, the artist's work recalls the history of art, working as a reminder of the prestige and, at the same time, the complexity of this medium.
