Damian-Ioan Popa

Damian-Ioan Popa‘s art has the spiritual gentleness of the concentric time. The artist is interested in the metaphysical dimension of the matter, the intertwining of the concrete with the imaginary, by the being’s weight as minimum aspect of macrocosm, by the necessity of the offerings as restorer element of the balance between man and divinity.
Determined by the understanding desire of the transitory stages of becoming being, inspired by various manifestations of some characters in the field of popular or theological mythologies, Damia-Ioann Popa tends towards the discovery, understanding and assuming an ordering principle, whose force has the capacity to tolerate and incorporate the expression of an original and innovative vision.”
