The Dreamy, Nostalgic Paintings of Dan Voinea

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Romanian artist Dan Voinea creates hallucinatory paintings of characters descending into madness and fantasy. Roughly painted figures appear doubled or translucent; sometimes different bodies melt into one another, blurring the lines of identity. Featuring wardrobes reminiscent of the 20th century and a color palette derived from early color photos, Voinea’s work is imbued with a twinge of nostalgia for a time that perhaps never existed in the first place. We find characters floating or lying supine — an allusion to an alternate dream world we watch them experience with their eyes closed. Take a look at some of his works below.
