Cristian Hermeziu is imposing in the arts world through the symbolism, intensity, complexity and uniqueness of its own style, refined in years of searching, finding, abandoning and retrieval.
Throughout his career, he has painted hundreds of paintings that are now in private collections. In love with the abstract symbolism of Byzantine art, Cristian studied church painting in the Faculty of Theology in Iasi and soon he was entrusted with painting of icons as well as works of interior painting.
The experience of the six years in which he painted the interiors of four Orthodox churches as well as hundreds of icons is found today in the abstract lines and the innovative technique of the artist Cristian Hermeziu. Cristian had an interesting journey as an artist, he began by being a painter, but the colours were not enough to express his experiences and inner world.
The love for wood and the innovative way to work with different materials were decisive for Cristian, helping him develop a new technique to make his paintings come alive. Thus, he created his seductive and sophisticated mural sculptures.
The way the artist shapes and paints the wood gives the viewer a wonderful illusion that the wood is no longer solid, that it flows. The shapes are fluid, blend and merge, revealing the mystery of a legend trapped in a symbol.
The abstract lines and the perfectly harmonised colours of Cristian's creations transform his sculptures into paintings that can be admired on the wall. The mural sculptures created by Cristian become the central piece in the space they are located in. The artist's original technique gives his paintings a 3d effect, making them come to life.
The way the artist shapes and paints wood gives the viewer a wonderful fluid illusion that creates dependency. Cristian loves to work in wood because of the heat and the way it can be shaped.
Cristian has always been fascinated by traditional working techniques, with hand tools, without using any machines or equipment. Now, this is not entirely possible, but always the finish is done manually.
The artist Cristian Hermeziu transmits his experiences through every piece of art: he leaves the creative flow to fill the wood and resonate with art lovers.
