Romanian artist Bogdan Mihai Radu to exhibit in London

Romanian artist Bogdan Mihai Radu, first prize winner at the 2018 Oxford International Art Fair will have his art exhibited at the Brancusi Gallery in London from March 20 to April 12, 2019. The display will contain twenty acrylic paintings from the “Searching for Life” series.

The artist has suffered in the last few years of a viral infection which led to a three-year paralysis. This experience has inspired Bogdan Mihai Radu and it has led to creating several paintings which he felt it was like a “a catharsis, or, more precisely, a form of internal combustion”. 

Bogdan Mihai Radu has noted that “The artistic direction which I am now moving in is the culmination of a long process of inner search and hard work of introspection. I believe that the last years spent in confrontation with myself have triggered an unswerving creative flow, thus generating a sincere, authentic painting marked by a contemporary abstractionism with a major importance to the public but especially to me as an artist.” 

Mihai Radu has graduated from the Fine Arts Faculty in Cluj-Napoca. He has had his first show at the Casa Ille et Villaine in 2002. He then had exhibitions at the Casa Luxemburg, at the Atelier 202 in Apoldu de Sus. He has also won the first prize at the Oxford International Art Fair and he was a special guest at the Tokyo International Art Fair. Many of his works are also part of private collections from Romania, Germany, Frace, the Netherlands and the US.
