Dorian Radu is an artist who produces hyper-realistic oil portrait paintings. He has been commissioned to paint pieces destined to prestigious private collectors such as the Romanian Royal Family, the BBC TV Series “Cradle to Grave”. His work has been exhibited in exhibitions such as the Royal Scottish Academy Open 2018, or the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, winning the L. Cornelissen & Son Prize in 2017. Dorian’s work revolves around the concept of identity. Each painting studies the character of the model, trying to reach beyond the “mask”. Most of the times, when posing for portraits, models tend to sit in a way in which they intend to be perceived by the outside eye. However, instead of replicating that rather formal appearance, successful portraits capture the “in- between” moments of relaxation when the models unintentionally expose their true self. Once that genuine aura is captured by the artist, it becomes a defining feature that adds to the conceptual value of the portrait. As an artist, Dorian enjoys asking questions, transforming his pieces into small riddles. While at first sight his paintings seem nothing but accurate replicas of reality, the identities of the pensive faces that appear on canvas are concealed behind small hints, ranging from the titling of the pieces, to the gazes of the models and the context surrounding them. Each element is always included for a reason, acting as a brick that helps building and reshaping the overall story of the painting. Dorian’s art is at a junction between traditional and contemporary principles, as the main aim is to bring back the aesthetics and criteria of traditional portrait painting and also identify the role of portraiture in contemporary art, as the artist juggles with the limitless meanings and purposes of the human figure. #artoftheday #arts #art_spotlight #artwork #artofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #art #artistic #artesanato #artist #portraitartist #dorianradu

Θα ’ρθει μια μέρα που τα δέντρα θα μισήσουν την αχαριστία των ανθρώπων και θα σταματήσουν να παράγουν ίσκιο, θροΐσματα κι οξυγόνο. Θα πάρουνε τις ρίζες τους και θα φύγουν. Μεγάλες τρύπες θα μείνουνε στη γη εκεί που ήταν πριν τα δέντρα. Όταν οι άνθρωποι καταλάβουνε τι έχασαν, θα πάνε και θα κλάψουνε πικρά πάνω απ’ αυτές τις τρύπες. Πολλοί θα πέσουν μέσα. Τα χώματα θα τους σκεπάσουν. Κανείς δεν θα φυτρώσει... (Αργύρης Χιόνης, από την ποιητική συλλογή «Λεκτικά Τοπία», 1983. Φωτ. Bend in the Road Through the Forest by Paul Cezanne ©1873) . #art #fineart #classicart #paintings #artwork #artist #famousartists #artofinstagram #art_spotlight #paulcezanne #dailyartpost #artpost #worldofartists #worldofart #loveart #poetry #prayforamazonia #wakeup

Take a moment. Take a deep breath. If there is any tension. Fear. Insecurity. Any feeling that makes your body shake when you close your eyes and breathe. Acknowledge it. Simply notice it. And with all the love in your hear. Forgive yourself for feeling this way. You didn’t do anything wrong. You never made any mistake by feeling. And you are brave enough and strong enough to heal and overcome. But first. Breathe. Acknowledge. And forgive. If you are in Los Angeles this weekends. Join my energy workshop this Sunday. We will practice self love and forgiveness. ☀️ 🦋 ☀️ 🦋 ☀️ 🦋 #inspiration #energy #energyhealing #courage #couragequotes #bravery #believeinyourself #iamenough #worthy #meditation #spiritualawakening #spirituality #spiritualhealing #selfcare #selflove #nevergiveup #youareenough #spring #loveyourself #painting #originalart #flight #art #artistsoninstagram #artofinstagram #artwork #friday #fridaymood #fridayvibes #fridaymotivation

Some simple ingredient bowls. . If you’re anything like me, taking the time to cook a good meal can sometimes feel like a big chore. . I created a few of these bowls for myself a while back and have fallen so in love with using them when I’m cooking. They make the whole experience so much more delightful. . These will be coming with me to the downtown market tomorrow 💗 . #pottery #ceramics #theartifacthouse #pottersofinstagram #michiganmaker #finecraft #makersgunnamake #standardclay #artist #lovewhatido #grartist #texture #makersmovement #kilnfolk #makersofinstagram #homedecor #ceramica #handcrafted #wheelthrowing #handmademovement #artofinstagram #artifacts #ceramicjewelry #handmadejewelry #clayfolk #grmag

Gf and I are hooked on Kimetsu no Yaiba, and she loved Nezuko almost instantly because of how cute she is. I decided to give drawing her a shot to surprise her and she loved it! Needless to say, my skills aren't all that great but at least I am happy with how it turned out. My rendition and source image for comparison. Also, drawing on chalk is a PAIN. I miss drawing so much. Adulting sucks sometimes 😭 . . . . . #art #drawing #draw #drawings #sketch #chalk #chalkart #artwork #anime #kimetsunoyaiba #demonslayer #nezuko #cute #cutie #instaart #instagood #instadaily #beginnerartist #artoftheday #artofinstagram #kawaii #hobby #surprise #japanese #bestgirl #animeart #animedrawing #instadraw #drawingart

Watercolor Landscape | Beauty of Baker Street, London . . During my London visit, I was rushing from one bust stop another with family because we catched the wrong bus.. my eyes stick to this beautiful colored restaurant and it's vibrant reflections on the gray bricks.. I was in huge regret that I couldn't capture it.. but you know what guys, by my luck our bus was passing by the same spot again.. I felt so happy and managed to click loads of pics in few seconds.. and found the right one when I started to paint it.. It took me so long because I had other commitments in between.. couldn't do it continuously,yet I enjoyed doing it and happy with final result it gave me!! Preserving this as a beautiful memory of London.. If you find yourself attached to this place or have a nostalgia, don't hesitate to DM me.. . .

In 1568 Dr John Dee published "Propaedeumata Aphoristic", in which he stated that every object in the universe exerts a force on all others. A simple statement with such far reaching implications that he himself couldn't have even imagined. . . . . . 7 #Art #artist #artwork #arte #artoftheday #artistic #artsy #artofvisuals #artistsoninstagram #arts #artgallery #artists #artistsofinstagram #artlife #artlovers #artstagram #artista #artisan #artistoninstagram #artworks #artshow #artcollector #artforsale #artshub #artlover #artofinstagram #artphotography #Artstudio #artcollective #artdeco
