About Mihai Cotiga

 
 
  • Biography

          Mihai Cotiga, born October 25, 1993 in Turnu Magurele, Teleorman County, Romania, is an artist established in Bucharest.

    2008-2012: He studied at "Mihai Eminescu" High School in Bucharest during 2008-2012.

    2009: He started painting lessons in private.

    2012: He began his studies at the Faculty of Architecture "Spiru Haret"

    2013: - Moved to his own studio where he still works           

               -Time in which he had an exhibition at the Bucharest Museum (November 2013)

    2015-2016: -exhibition Faculty of Architecture "Spiru Haret" (March-April)                       

                          -has collaborated with the Artful Contemporary Gallery

    2017: artist and student in terminal year at the Faculty of Architecture "Spiru Haret". Following his studies, he plans to be a multidisciplinary artist using both his college and art learned on his own account. Architecture has a great influence on his art, and it feels like treating the line, depth and volumes, but also through the themes and images used that involve social subjects. On the other hand, a great influence in his work is philosophy and science, so from them it develops more. From an artistic point of view, the greatest influence was from the abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, to which Yves Klein adds by his fascination with immaterial. From their influence, he seeks for his viewers to have a profound experience when they look at a work, with which he can learn to develop himself into the process of the artist because in his approach he studies something new for each series of works contributing to both personal development and the viewers.

    2018: group exibition at Singular-Art, “A piece. A place.”, Nijmegen, Netherlands. May-June

    Questioning existence, the works revolve around light and death. Searching for an answer through various experiences and emotion. A perpetual exploration of the human being as well of its perception, spirit and understanding. It started as a search through the imaterial, finding the void and the answers to the questions that appear in between. The paintings are an endless journey in explaining what and why we are.

    The language of painting is as intuitive and concrete as life itself. The questions come to answers and the answers come to questions. As the exploration goes, it embraces space, science, philosophy and many others.

    The works are a statement of pure emotion through an uncertain existence.   

    At the base of the work is human existence, to which are attached questions and answers and implicitly again questions. Thus, by understanding and explaining, it is possible to add any necessary element, whether it be drawing, image, object, to the abstract as the predominant form of expression. His series of works include topics such as SpaceX, "human painting", numerous series on light, Solaris, Stellar Segions, Imminence of Death.    

    Currently the predominant language of expression is painting, to which are added pictures, drawings and installations. The materials used in the works are very varied, oils, alkyd paint, oxides, thinner, various substances, ink, etc. To the latter are added paper, earth and plaster.    

    The artist plans to learn along the way with the audience and from the audience. In the future, to work in a larger studio continuing to experiment with more ways of expression and topics so as to provide a better and profound experience.

    Late 2018 the artist has made a transition from abstract painting to figurative paintings based on sci-fi imagery extracted and developed from bookcovers, magazine covers and illustrations.

    Mihai Cotiga’s works can be found in private collection all over the world, United Arab Emirates, France, Romania, United States of America, Canada etc.
