THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Venice is indescribably beautiful, a centaur-like hybrid, neither land, nor water, nor sky, but somewhere in between and all of the above. It’s the kind of place that is spectacular in every shade of light and any season. This eye-grabbing sight of Venice’s graceful, delicate silhouette represented in this wonderful painting by artist Ioan Popei, gives reason to fall in love with this city all over again. A dedication to details and forms inspires this piece, both physically and imaginatively idiosyncratic. The texture and complexity of the painting's surface are its defining characteristic, as we have grown accustomed to from Popei.
GETTING TO KNOW IOAN POPEI
Born to the town of Agapia, Romania, in the year 1954, Ioan Popei takes painting to a soothing new level, striving to provide paintings with gentle colors and calming ones that show off his gentle ways and reflect the placid spirit that moves the paintbrush to create the strokes on his mediums. Ioan Popei is primarily an oil painter with his beautiful works showing up on mediums such as cardboard and canvas alike, offering unique mediums that get across his interesting points.
