Born in Bucharest, Bogdan Molea is a Romanian contemporary artist known for paintings that involve strong visual experience. Through an examination of his preoccupation with shape and space as well as the notion of gravity, Molea’s detailed paintings present a larger-than-life representation of ordinary objects. He graduated with a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the Monumental Art and Restoration Section of the Nicolae Grigorescu Fine Art Institute in Bucharest. Apart from painting, Molea also designs and works on architectural and ambient spaces, and has participated in other projects of monumental art and restorations of ancient mural paintings.
