Abstract art master, Gheorghe Virtosu in his 2016 Collection of works is exploiting the evocative interrelation between color, motion, and form to create an aesthetic experience that carries a message within. The contemporary artist 's oil painting proves the connection between objective and abstract art. The master of abstract art conveys the sense of drama and action in his canvases, through the complex and vibrant painting texture, done with loose, gestural brushwork, and intensive palette. Thus, the artist accepts narration as an essential part of his abstract works. The oil painting title creates the bridge between his art and the viewer, giving the key to the interpretation of the image. Paradoxically, the artist doesn’t oust but welcomes the reality into his paintings. 

This classical idea also embodies the argument that the masses need to be governed and are incapable of governing themselves. Thus it follows that if they need to be lied to it will be for their own good.
