Ioan Popei seems to want to bring his own tranquility and sense of peace to the homes of those who buy his art with gentle pastels making up a lot of his work. His excitement for life does not go overlooked, as even his abstract work features fiery bursts of reds and oranges among the landscape of light blues, purples and grays. Ioan Popei truly covers a wide spectrum of thought, color and emotion in his paintings, and he brings to life not only the wonder of nature but the skill and perseverance of man to live amongst the wild in all of his pieces.
