Painter / Photographer / Video / Media and visual artistEugen Moritz

I love to do any kind of art work, drawing, painting, but in the same time I am attracted to the technology, digital art, digital photography and video.

I love to do any kind of art work, drawing, painting, but in the same time I am attracted to the technology, digital art, digital photography and video. I don’t know if somebody influenced my childhood but now I am fascinated by the Flemish painting and sometimes by the Italian Renaissance. During the 1990, I have been well known in the photography world for my experimental images. Today I am remarked as an artist who combines painting and photography in an artistic visual composition.

Eugen Moritz is a contemporary visual artist born in 1959 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

His love for art took him to “Romul Ladea” Fine Art High School. After graduating from there he got a degree in painting and painting restoration from “ION ANDREESCU” Art Institute Cluj-Napoca. He lives and works in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Currently he is a PhD Professor at the University of Art and Design, (Cluj-Napoca), the Department of Photography, Video and Digital Imaging. Since 1990 he has been a member of the Union of Fine Artists in Romania, Cluj-Napoca subsidiary.

Since 1985 he has participated in more than three hundred personal photography and painting exhibitions, local, national, international, symposium, workshops, public events, film screenings and photo-media exhibitions. As a professor of art education, he has had an extensive teaching experience for more than 30 years, theoretical and artistic research, published books, articles, publications in art magazines, art catalogs, symposium participation and various collaborations with artistic institutions.

His artistic activity has been rewarded with national and international prizes in painting, photography and video. In recent years, he has published books, albums and catalogs on painting and new visual technologies, also dozens of articles in national and international journals, and he has had numerous contributions to publications and collective volumes.

He likes to lisen to jazz, rock and the music of 1960-1990 and he plays a percussion instrument to relax in his workshop. He admires Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.
