About | Ovidiu Solcan
Ovidiu Solcan is the creator of spectacular carefully designed pop-art collages, in which, at a closer look, one can discover interesting details that might escape an inattentive glance.
Ovidiu Solcan was born in 1983 in Bucharest, Romania, where he lived and studied architecture. His passion for art started at an early age but the University of Architecture influenced him to start producing magazine collages as a step forward from his mixmedia artworks (digital, graffiti and acrylic). The result was so exciting that, ever since, he have been more fascinated by the torn pieces of paper than paints.
Artworks of great architects like Le Corbusier and Friedensreich Hundertwasser were the start point of his collage art.
He enjoys working with nothing but his hands. All pieces of fashion and architecture magazines are manualy teard appart and glued to canvas.
Artist Statement | Ovidiu Solcan
It is not the just the joy of seeing the final form of the artwork, as I saw the land from the sky the first time I ever flew, but the process along the way and it seems cliché to say that, but that‘s how it really is, searching for pieces in the fashion and architectural magazines, the perfect fit of random manually torn apart papers, the big creative puzzle and the amount of information gathered in the artwork are the things that make me go all the way.
