As a surrealist painter (and a philosophical poet), Sorin Cretu's focus is into the abstract, the conceptual, the surreal, the archetypes, the ideas, and the metaphors of this world. All combined with the vastness of the soul. These are the seeds and the pillars of the stories that Sorin portrays in his vibrant artwork. His paintings clearly demand the participation of the observer, to dive inside them, and to embrace them in order to eyewitness this emerging new world.
Sorin's artwork represents is the living into the state of getting closer to the finality of our questions, it is the act of not walking away and turning the back to our battles, our turmoil and our dreams. Sorin's art has the power to bring you back to life. "You are all invited to fully participate into this new realization of our cosmos," shares Sorin.

Look again at this world through his art like through a magical crystal and find a new connection with your own intimacy, your prejudices, your shame and guilt, your safe zones and your dark demons lurking behind our precious convenience.
"My artist name is SORiaN, I am surrealist artist painter and my favorite medium is oil on canvas. As a painter, my focus is into the abstract, the conceptual, and the surreal.
Archetypes, ideas, metaphors of this world and the vastness of the soul are the seeds and the pillars of the stories that I am telling in my paintings. They demand the presence, the attention and the participation of the observer, to dive inside them, to embrace them in order to eyewitness this emerging new world.
The various philosophical, historical, social, psychological concepts are woven together into compositions which are telling stories along with them, inviting the beholder to understand them, to decrypt them, to re-evaluate one`s own vantage point, to give expression to the meaning of each one’s paradise or torment. My background in art and philosophy gives to this attempt a distinctive perspective.
My art looks for the liberated seeker, with the depth, tension and sharpness of un-imprisoned thought; it is about what seems to be in our sight, but mostly hides at the edge of our eye, it is about the truth in our un-admitted lies and the freedom we silently crave for in the shadow of our defeats. My art is about the presence, about the now and here in everything and the endurance to walk this path. "
