Abstract Art Artist Gheorghe Virtosu

Cool Abstract Art | Empowering Through Art

abstract artist Gheorghe Virtosu“To me the arts are particularly useful for building a movement, building a sense of cohesiveness, and empowering people to start thinking of themselves. This tagline I use for spreading the message.” said the abstract artist.

When talking about Abstract art, we usually think of something completely detached from the reality, chaotic and totally irrational. However, looking into the essence of this creative phenomenon, one can notice that, as a matter of fact, the very roots of Abstractionism are deeply connected with the surrounding existence. The material world starts tracing its images and patterns in our minds since the first moment we have opened our eyes. Composition, harmony, proportions, light, color, line, texture, mass, movement – all these are the elements of the ‘visual dictionary,’ composed by our physical sensations. Thus, the interaction with art objects is largely based on the ability to recognize the infinite manifestations of the material world in this or that image, even in the most abstract one. Abstract art doesn’t deny Life but transforms it into the ‘artistic reality,’ which is no less true and haptic then the reality itself.

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). However, all these subjects are united with the atmosphere of tension and desire to reveal certain conflict – the ‘stress point,’ as they call it in Physics. 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. As Stansilav Jerzy Lec once wrote, “You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.”

The work of abstract artist is driven by his complex, and at times harsh, life experience. Though his life has been difficult at points, it has led to an understanding that Virtosu believes he can share with others. As an artist, he is driven by the desire to better the world by sharing his experience. At first, his work was undertaken in private — a direct result of a long period of difficulty and solitude — but now the contemporary artist is sharing his art with the world.

With both his writing and painting, the artist finds in the creative process a way to process — and then elevate — the negative emotions that have at times overwhelmed him. His works are part of a complex coding, a method of processing his experiences. When ready, Virtosu starts sketching in blue and red pen on white paper, a story-coding style he developed while serving in the military. As the process continues — sometimes slowly over a year or two, oftentimes in dreams — colors are added to the original sketch. His style is unique and individualistic, an intelligent art that moves away from realism and into the realm of the mystical.

Through his art, he passes his message to the world.

Revolutionary Ideology

The author asks us and himself “What is the fundamental of revolution?” Is it a leader? Is it his or her supporters? None of those, since the only element that unites a leader and his followers, is fighting for certain ideas, standing for the principles you believe in. Any real revolution is impossible without ideology. It is the bending substance, which turns a horde into the historical power. | Abstract Canvas Art |

Fatimah Bint Muhammad, Gheorghe Virtosu

Fatima is looking at the divine well or mirror and is surrounded by fire, much of it being highly intense. Is this the fire of knowledge; the passion for learning or the intensity of her feelings towards a particular person or her children? Fatima is not harmed by the fire as the painting depicts her as surviving it, because she is divine. The fire is in the background and she is in the forefront. The artist may suggest that she dominates the fire, not vice-versa, more so because of her status; or because of her life story? She is well-protected. | Abstract Canvas Art |

Blairism

Unlike many, the contemporary artist doesn’t want his pieces to be the Kantian ‘things-in-itself.’ Being the follower of non-figurative art, he still keeps the narration as an important part of his abstract creations, introducing it through the speaking titles and ‘epigraphs’ to the works. While definitely relishing the artistic qualities of the abstract painting, the author at least partly submits it to the general concept that frequently touches upon the subjects of personal or social matter. This painting's many evanescent forms and colors overlapping and intersecting could be a visual rendering of the many aspects of Tony Blair and perhaps of his deceit. | Abstract Canvas Art |

The work of the abstract artist is driven by his complex, and at times harsh, life experience.
As an artist, he is driven by the desire to better the world by sharing his experience. At first, his work was undertaken in private — a direct result of a long period of difficulty and solitude — but now the contemporary artist is sharing his art with the world. Born in Romania in 1968, Virtosu is of the generation that came of age as the calcified Eastern Bloc was slouching towards its final collapse in 1989. Suddenly — literally — a world of possibilities opened up to young people from Eastern Europe. With unimaginable options now open to him, Virtosu left the Republic of Moldova after his compulsory military service and a three-year stint in the state security services was complete. He traveled the world, soaking up its rich and varied textures, and eventually settled in London and became a British citizen.
