- Prezentare Generala:
What motivates me is the ambition, but especially the passion for art and artistic domains and profiles. I have chosen to study painting above all form of art because when I paint and create something new that resides from inside myself it feels that I’m renouncing and building something more important than the present: a memory that will remain in time.
Safir and Rifas born in 11.23.1987,/28.04.1983 in Deva, graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Painting Department, UAD, Cluj-Napoca, we studied Fine Arts under the guidance of the Romanian contemporary art names. After graduation from Cluj- Napoca ,we improved our gained knowledge, in the Western University, at Faculty of Arts and Design, Department of Painting, following Master courses given by renowned professors. Our creations include traditional painting, figurative or abstract, original concepts, photography, photo - manipulation, digital art. Mixed technique paintings are made by joining or patching pictorial surface with different combinations of materials and textures of cloth, cardboard, plywood, crystals and pulp color, well integrated in the coherence compositional structure. On the one hand, we give free will to the flow evolution and informal gestures, stimulating disintegratives forces, and on the other hand, clarifying forms of human traits, these wandering spirits are pushed to the limit of a symbolic dialogue with the audience. Substrate raise topics of psychological, philosophical, mystical, mythological, fantastic, romantic, literary, mathematical, metaphorical vision prior to painting, through metamorphosis and anamorphosis the figurative to the abstract images, from real to imaginary.
