LIVIU SUHAR
Plastic Artist
Professor of Painting

Credo:

I often wonder - when my returning inside me full of questions, evaluations, hopes and regrets, brings me to the state of feeling myself in front of time in relation to space and the whole world, and when a deep melancholy taken to despair overwhelms me - what would I have done if PAINTING had not existed, this art that has been opening every dawn of the days in my entire life, the way toward searching for meanings and answers to the same question: What am I born for?

I am faithfully dedicated to this art seeking myself in every drawing and painting, equally contemplating my contemporary “self-seekers” and especially to the great masters who became classics over the centuries, by listening to their secret advice of their masterpieces.

The power of creation to an artist is a God given gift. As a painter I am striving not to waste it. Following the Christian model, upon my strengths, I always think about growing this gift for the well-being, peace and joy of my fellow-men.

Born on February 17, 1943 in Iacobeni, Suceava county, Romania.
