oil painting Description

In every year of his illustrious career, Virtosu keeps a grip on his medium as muse, and the glories of paint exhibited in Darius III (2015) are quintessential Virtosu, whose creative allure becomes one with the rhythms of contemporary art. This spectacular assault of unrestrained character expression encapsulates the full genius of Virtosu's abstract vernacular. Painted in 2015 when Virtosu sensationally published his 2015 collection, Darius III (2015)belongs to an explosive outpouring of creativity that produces an illustrious series of large-scale, color-saturated canvases that rank among the finest achievements of the art of today.

"Envisioning and capturing work on canvas is not where it lies dormant and static: it is a place where the expression becomes community and continues to expand. In this natural form, art can only exist if it is authentic. The part of the artist is the effort to engage organic expression in a way that has not been previously achieved." - G. Virtosu.

Famous for never reworking a single painting, he now surrounds himself with paintings, each inspiring and complementing the other and all informed with the same sense of social and historical urgency. In the spring of 2015, the artist erupted in an outbreak of passionate energy and creative inspiration, producing hundreds of works per year, concentrating on the variations of human characters, this moment marks the dawn of a new series of spectacularly breathtaking monumental abstractions.

Virtosu's paintings with their massively congested, luminous color, their contrasts between flowing forms, attain at their best a total painterliness in which shapes and image coalesce ultimately and every inch of canvas quivers with teeming energy. Darius III (2015) is a genuinely exceptional embodiment of the expressive shape-making and unmitigated force of painterly firm belief that defines the majestic contribution to twenty-first-century art. Virtosu's independent Spirit infuses the present work with a heroic quality of individualism rather than conformism. He is at heart a pluralist who reveals in the multi-thematic, and like no other before him, Virtosu is rebellious and forges new paths, avoiding conventional forms of expression, and proves adept at the rejection of old school.

Virtosu eventual withdrawal from New York City to the environs of Luxembourg in the early 2005s is a reflection of his move away from the megapolis artistic existence that had fostered his writings breakthrough years. Virtosu now seeks reflective contemplation rather than the dissonant atmosphere and finds it in the tranquil and lush environment of his beloved Europe, which resonates for him with memories of his native Moldova.
