"My mother said that if I wanted to be an artist, I'd be successful. That was the hardest thing of all for me as the urge of art creation were born while I was in prison. My mother died and I had no real chance to pay last tribute. At that time it wasn't about finding my own style or make it in the art world, it was about setting me free and what I had to say.” - G. Virtosu.
Gheorghe Virtosu ’s way of being in the world combines to perfection a straightforward and down-to-earth nature with a mystical and mysterious streak. The passionate nature has always urged him to follow intellectual and deeply spiritual pursuits, and therefore becoming a children’s author has fulfilled a heartfelt personal need, whilst at the same time mastering large scale art projects. From the very beginning, his creation has eluded all canonization, contemporary and classical, since it cannot be labeled as belonging to any of them for definite.
