Vio Arhir Art

I am an artist from Brasov. I have been studying painting for a few years with two amazing local artists that are internationally renowned. Until now, I have exhibited my work in a number of local group exhibitions. Internationally, the most notable accomplishment was a semi-honorable mention at ArtOlympia Japan in 2019. The jury consisted of curators from New York and Tokyo, and my piece was chosen out of thousands of applicants.

Through my pieces, I want to paint feelings, emotions captured in the position of the human body, in an immediate and spontaneous gesture. I don’t spend a lot of time creating each piece, as I want to keep the same state of spirit I want to pass on to the canvas, throughout the whole process: initial lines, colors, finishing touches. It is not my intention to create beauty. I am just showing you in oil what I see, what I choose to see.

Current Work

two series of paintings

The main one comes as a reaction to the current social context. I’ve started with “Two to the ceiling”, a picture of isolation, followed by “For the times”, a piece that is pretty self-explanatory

My secondary ongoing project is a series of a very cute monster-ish creature I created. The plan is to portray him in different typical scary contexts, just to emphasize his humanity and cuteness.

What about the Road to Success?

revolving around painting​

When I am not actually working on a piece, I am thinking about my next ones. I take every chance to paint outside, even if nature is not the focus of my style, it’s for getting out of the box every now and then.

I am also passionate about art museums. The most impressive exhibition was Mark Rothko in Vienna. The sheer size of the pieces, the colors… it was a unique experience.

So, how do you like My work until now?
