Florian Doru Crihana

Romanian artist Florian Doru Crihana (*1958) occupies a special place among Europe’s critical artists, not least because of the tools that he uses. It is not the overworked “pointed pen” with which he impales political aberrations and everyday confusion. Instead, Crihana uses a fine brush and oil paints to conjure up meticulous and finely painted idylls, which masquerade as a perfect world but which, on closer inspection, show those flaws and cracks that raise questions about any work produced by humans.
