Bogdan Molea was born in 1958 and established himself in his 40 year long career as a master of hyper realistic art. He worked as a cartoon animation designer, curator and conserver at The National Archeology and History Museum in Constanta (Romania), associated professor at The Fine Arts Institute “Nicolae Grigorescu” (Romania) and teacher at Max the Mutt-Animation School in Toronto. He is living and working in Canada.
He describes his work as “perception” because it involves a personal visual experience where the contrast between reality and utopia generates a spiritual transcendental dimension. The artist explores the concept of perspective and also illusory textile structures which create a ”Virtual Space”. He finds the technical difficulties of realistically rendering the materiality of existing or invented objects challenging, but nonetheless satisfying.
