The Hands is a replica painting of a small portion of The Creation of Adam done by Michelangelo. The original is painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Twice now, I've had the opportunity see Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel and I must say, it is a truly an inspiring experience.
This is part of a series of paintings that I filmed while painting. If you would like see the making of this painting here is the link to it on youtube : https://youtu.be/Xh967cKKnhA
My passion for art began when I was very young. Like most children I was given a pencil and a paper to draw on. However, I never put the pencil down. Often, were times I got in trouble in school for drawing instead of listening to the teacher. Despite the setbacks, my passion for drawing grew and expanded into painting as well. When it was time for me to go to university to study my parents told me to do something practical. I told them I wanted to do something that I was passionate about. And that’s what I did. I received my bachelor’s degree in art from the University of Bucharest. Before moving to the Unites States, I taught art in both private and public school in Romania. I truly believe that art makes the world a better place, and with every painting, drawing, or art video that I make it is my attempt to make the world a little better.
