Victor Man

Born in Cluj, 1974 and lives in Berlin and Cluj, Romania

Victor Man (1974, Cluj Romania) is interested in the position of painting in art history. In his point of view we find ourselves only at the beginning of the redefinition of painting. The artist is working with images taken from the media. The images are selected not by its contents or meaning but by its abstract form. They are emptied of its story or social context. Grouped in two’s the works function as duets in which each single piece, when linked together, receives a new sense or turbulence. The accretion and juxtaposition of images, which have initially been meaningless, creates the narrative. The colours and painterly technique Man applies are reminiscent of different periods in art history.
