Marian Ionescu of the band Direcţia 5 had his first painting exhibition this year at the largest contemporary art fair in Romania, Art Safari. He then exhibited at ARCUB. Here’s one of my favorite paintings of his show there. It’s titled Urban, and for some reason reminds me of Keith Haring’s lines. It also speaks to me of how we try to impose rational lines onto a city to oppose its organic growth, and how in the end the fabric of that city is a jumbled mixture of lines that make up a palimpsest of its urban history.

Mira Tudor, Thank you for sharing the urban perspectives. Does he indicate anywhere why he chooses the colors that he does? Beige/tan implies to me non-residential buildings.

Hi Derdriu, and thank you for your comment. Why would beige be preferred for non-residential buildings? Is that a convention somewhere?
