ON IR IX
The art exhibition made part from a series of art events – “Get Together” - created together with the fashion brand Maisonnée Berlin.
The solo show, “ONIRIX” by Mihai Florea, spanning 9 (nine) paintings created in the last year. ONIRIX is an exhibition about the power of the human unconscious, the images that reside and resist in our memory after the dream. Nine years ago, Mihai Florea dreamt three dreams in three different nights. Scrutinizing the unconscious and remembering his dream images, the artist began to paint. Each dream has three sequences that were realized in painting as three movie shots.
The nine works are painted in a manner close to the hyper-realistic one, but with fine elements of surrealism and oniric. Mihai Florea painted his dreams in the form of unclear personal realities, loaded with rich yet unimaginable meanings, of which destiny resides in the individual way perceived and interpreted by the viewer.
Born in 1986, in Transylvania (Reghin), Romania, Mihai Florea is one of the leading young artists with exhibitions in New York, Istanbul, Berlin. Mihai Florea graduated the University of Art, Bucharest and works several years in the film industry. He got the recognition with his figurative paintings that reflect alternative worlds multiply within an ephemeral reality. The artworks by Mihai Florea have been collected by a number of esteemed private collections from Germany, Belgium, United States of America, Romania. Mihai Florea is represented by Anaid Art Gallery Bucharest/Berlin since 2011.
