"The unknown, the energy, and the struggle to discover the essence of life
the movement and the metamorphosis are the basic elements of my work."
The search for the Human essence, for the link between the human reality and the spiritual one are the leading ideas in Octavian Florescu's work.
The elements used by the artist are almost real; the characters are fluid and in motion; they are spiritual, radiating an energy on the point of merging with the Universe.
Each work is a story, a rhapsody, a vision into spirituality. The artist is trying to suggest only the idea of departure in meditation toward perfection, without creating the image of an absolute world.
The suppleness of his human symbols, the movement, the soaring toward the infinite try to introduce the spectator into a system of perfection. The translucence, spectrum of colors, accuracy of his drawing make Florescu a great master of both, oil and acrylic techniques.
All of Octavian Florescu's work is a real introspection of life.

Biography
Françoise Nielly is a French knife-painter who is famous for painting vibrant and colourful closeup portraits of people such as Barack Obama. She was born in Marseille, brought up near Cannes and Saint-Tropez and is now living in Paris.

Françoise Nielly's artwork is typically vibrant, and detailed. A lot of her work is inspired by urban life. Françoise uses knives to paint her artwork as she seems to prefer the thick, clean brushstrokes created by them. Painting portraits is her speciality. As a child, she was taught by her father that there was "no room for mistakes", and this has potentially influenced the intricacy of her artwork. She layers her paintings with bright and contrasting colour. She was represented in many exhibitions and art fairs in Europe (Spain, France, UK) and America (US, Canada).
