#EPISODE 7 - DAN BADEA
Dan Badea (b. 1975, Bucharest) is a seasoned professional artist with numerous personal and collective exhibitions. He focuses on figurative art, aiming to depict the complications of life through a combination of color, texture and symbolism. He often uses collages as a way of layering and mixing the surface with the meaning of the materials. Dan Badea is interested in reviving and reframing all his paintings, overlapping the paint with old cuttings and photographs in different ways according to specific purposes. In this way he creates narratives to act like subversive advertisements for immaterial things such as Memory, Love, The Sublime, Paradise, Death, or the definition of the human being. It is, after all, an artistic attempt at resistance and critique.
