Originally from Turda, Romania, Liviu Bulea  finished his studies in Graphics at the University of Art and Design of Cluj-Napoca. The artist has established himself through a series of displays, the latest of them in 2016 – during his stayat Kultur Kontakt Vienna & a final exposition „Simulacrum” ( Paralell Vienna).

His artistic activity is characterized by personal and collective ventures and his interest taken in undertakings of production design and curatorial projects, with local and national impact. His conceptual artistic understanding pursues two distinct concerns, both indissolubly linked to his personal life and experiences: a dimension of the intimate, of masculine sexuality and the immediate experiences and memories, which all bring about feelings to the likes of  love, isolation, drama, tragedy – discrepancies from the view of the ethics and social standards, the politics and economic context so current in East European average perception (CryptoAbout White); and a dimension with a tendency towards generalization, a dimension of increasing industrial environments, of the upheaving role of an object cumulated in the different stages of designing a material world (Sold OutUnnatural circumstances), these staged are part of a certain culture and are very current in their socio-economic character.

Thus, in this sense, the motif of ruins, prefabs and recyclables enter into a dialog with architecture (abstract this time around) which exceeds spatial coordinates and follows the morphology of personal depictive fusions.
