Early life

Andrei grew up in Bucharest Romania with his mother after the divorce of his parents when he was 5 years old. The other 2 brothers lived with him and his mother a few years later. He got a sister at 13. Since a child he loved colors and pencils. Not having the suport of his family he made his art during school in the class hours, being thrown outside especially by the chemestry teacher. Also, he spent the nights drawing to fullfill his dreams to become an artist.
Because art school was not an option, he made a math highschool and spent his money on pens and papers instead buying foos at school. At that time drawing and writing poems were the first of all his passions and in the end, even after discovering other skills he kept those two as the most important ways of expresion. All the roadblocks he got during most of his life, ambitioned him to go further and get better and better.

School background

Andrei got a degree in Fine Arts at the "National University of Fine Arts " in Bucharest [2010]. He chose graphics because he considered the a good painting needs a good drawing/sketch. As complementary optional subjects, pottery technique and stained glass technique enriched his experience. The most important personal achievement during school was learning the engraving technique under the teachings of Florin Stoiciu.


Nature. Human nature.
