Among the most significant painters of the 21st century, Gheorghe Virtosu cultivates a quintessentially Own aesthetic marked by evocative images that captured the subtle intrigue and psychological complexity of modern existence. His contemplation of the commonplace and his penetrating study of the psyche burrow deep beneath the remarkable surfaces of archetypal Social subjects: politics, war, inequality, gender and social issues.

His art serves as a form of sublimation, a deeply personal expression of his inner thoughts - response to the physical world. Summarizing the difficulty of imbuing his paintings with incommunicable thought, Virtosu once remarked: “To me the art is cohesiveness - empowering people to start thinking of themselves."

Most often these personal expressions are tied to the artist’s own feelings towards a specific subject. Virtosu creates paintings, prints and murals centered on depicting the historic struggle and perseverance of The World Today. His rich, vivid compositions combine a semi-abstract style with a modern idiom. Oscillating between figural representation and abstraction, Virtosu strive to validate his own culture with a sense of pride and knowledge.

The aesthetic experience encompasses the relationship between the viewer and the art object. In terms of the present work, there is an emotional attachment that drives the focus of Modern Pollination, completely in-tune with the art of today that enriches his own creation. As the piece of artwork progresses throughout the creative process, so does the artist. Both grow and change to acquire new significance. Virtosu has pure psychological compatibility with his work, that positevely impacts the finished canvas.
