    Event: Debut Exhibition - Dominic Virtosu

    Dates: July 29, 2022 - Aug. 20, 2022

    Venue: Impulse Gallery, Lucerne, Switzerland

    IMPULSE GALLERY is delighted to introduce the new representation of Dominic Virtosu in Lucerne, Switzerland. Dominic-Petru Virtosu was born in 1983 in Bucharest, Romania. He completed his formal artistic education with a license in painting in the class of renowned Romanian artist Florin Ciubotaru and a master's in 2013 at the Bucharest National University of Arts. Simultaneously, Virtosu also attended the prestigious Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig as an exchange student where he was guided by the style and colour of Annette Schroter.

    Virtosu's German education proved to be a founding element for his work ethic and discipline that led him to continuously develop his artistic practice over the years. At the same time, his French heritage also played a part in creating a strong connection to the cultural and artistic environment of Paris where the most relevant and prestigious museums of the time were readily accessible.

    Event: Co Existence

    Dates: Jan. 14, 2022 - Feb. 24, 2022

    Venue: Akm Art Galeria, Turkey

    The first international contemporary art exhibition "Coexistence" of Istanbul Atatürk Cultural Centre, organized by Tabularasa Transnational Art Platform, is now taking place, with participation of 20 artists from 10 different countries. The commonality of people's spiritual, intellectual, and behavioral processes forms the culture underlying the transformation of the "I" into the "we." While climate change/crime affects every living being, no other remedy can be considered other than adopting a "common world culture," that is, achieving coexistence. Art is also one of the most effective form of communication about environmental destruction. In this context, our exhibition poses the question, "Why should we coexist?"

    Event: Sea of Flowers

    Dates: Sept. 29, 2019 - Nov. 18, 2019

    Venue: Dock Gallery Rotterdam, Veerhaven 4, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Decide what to show when what's inside you becomes uncomfortable. Which color to use, for each and every one of your moods. Be your own Sea of Flowers. Dive into your thoughts. Bring your feelings to the surface. Prepare to be amazed starting on the 29th of September 2019 at noon at Dock Gallery (Veerhaven nr.4, Scheepvaartkwartier, Rotterdam).

    The exhibition will showcase works by Zhuang Hong-Yi, David Belien, Daan Van Doorn, Miguel Chevalier and Dominic-Petru Virtosu and will be open Friday to Sunday 13:00-18:00 and by appointment till the 15th of November 2019.
