The challenge of this art is to evolve an expansive landscape that brings the viewer, idea, artist, and experience together. At once it is chaos, and at the same time a simple embrace of the loss of boundaries at the portal to new understanding.

About

Reading the titles of his canvases, one can be surprised with the variety of the subjects, as they embrace everything, from religion (both Christian and Islamic – Adam and Eve, Zainab bint Muhammad) to the prominent figures of the modernity and past (Winston Churchill, Henry VIII of England), and highly topical or permanent themes (Pride Parade, The Source of Life). All these subjects are united with the atmosphere of tension and desire to reveal certain conflict – the ‘stress point' - the social message one may call it.

Having a biography full of dramatic and difficult situations, Gheorghe Virtosu doesn’t try to reject and forget it – he courageously faces his inner challenges and sublimates the life experience into aesthetic form.
