About Vasile Ghiuta
His abstract art works are inspired by human feelings, emotions and thoughts and represent a wealth of knowledge and experience that the artist has acquired over the years.
As an avid reader and a passionate traveller, Vasile Ghiuta gained valuable information and guidance from his several trips to the most famous history museums, art museums and art galleries, spread in so many cities over the world: Toronto, Paris, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Rome, Brussels, Istanbul, Amman, Petra, Jerusalem, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Each of these journeys enhanced his desire to express his own vision about humanity, and paint the colors of this world, as he sees it through his art.
He believes that life is a sum of various experiences that carry a large amount of energy which could be transposed through the power of color and specific painting techniques into real life stories.His acrylic on canvas works aim to express this concept, inviting the viewer to take a step forward into the world of self-discovery and reflection.Each of his canvases tells a story, and every story needs to be shared. While Vasile is an abstract painting artist, the essence of his works is extracted from reality: real life, real people, and real emotions. Whether is about joy or sadness, happiness or dismay, victory or defeat, his work is for sure an expression of his vision that life is an amazing journey and only human beings can make it unforgettable.
Vasile thinks that art in its diverse forms and shapes gives us the chance to use our creativity and imagination and bring to light the finest, most intricate threads woven together to make the very essence of our souls. It defines us to the tiniest particles of what we have become along this journey. One story can take us back in time, it could be a history lesson that helps understand our roots, remember our fathers and honour their sacrifice; another story could be inspired by the joy in a child’s eyes, making us look to future generations with respect, hope and optimism.
From his point of view, as an artist, it is all about life experiences, emotions and evolution. It is all about feelings, thoughts and vibes translated into a language that uses colors to express an idea, to convey a message to humankind.
