Pentru ca nu vom uita si pentru ca simt ca impreuna putem sa facem ceva frumos, lansez provocarea de a crea o echipa care sa creeze un mozaic pe peretele de la Colectiv. Cu ceva timp inainte de a se intampla tragedia de la Colectiv, am inceput o lucrare de mozaic cu titlul “Tulip Lady”. […]

Believe it or not, I had one friend that did not yet own a mosaic masterpiece of mine… :p So, looking around his living room, I noticed the presence of two lovely graphic tulip paintings in black & white and white & black. That got me thinking about introducing a smudge of color, just a […]

That is thanks to my regular supplier of mosaics – Top Mosaic – with whom I have a very pleasant collaboration. I’m sure you can acknowledge and, hopefully, rejoice […]

Întunecate, murdare, deprimante – în tot Bucureştiul poţi găsi astfel de pasaje care duc oamenii spre casele lor zi după zi, sezon după sezon, an după an. Asta este tot ce putem avea? Eu zic NU!!! Am un vis si vreau să-l împărtăşesc cu voi! În februarie 2012, am venit cu această propunere pentru a […]

Dark, dirty, and depressing passageways taking people to their homes, day after day, season after season, year after year. Is that all we can have? I say no!!! I have a dream and I would like to share it with you! In February 2012, I posted this proposal for a mosaic mural. Because of lack […]

In-between the way too long periods of rain, I did manage to squeeze in a bit of work on the mosaic bench. This is how it looks like with the mosaic on it. Does it remind a bit of park Guell as planned? Next step, the grouting. And we’ll be done! Excited to see the […]

While waiting for some sunny days, I remembered I haven’t showed you another social project I spotted. A bunch of cement block on which people sit in a park close to my home. Doesn’t it scream for a mosaic project? Any suggestions? I was thinking of the 4 seasons’ theme, since there are 4 lateral […]

Mosaic Terrace Bench Update

Remember I was looking for a theme for the mosaic terrace bench on my best friend’s terrace? Well, as usual, I like thinking of my “client’s” personality and interests and get inspired from there. It is him, after all, that is going to see it most often, and it is crucial that he likes it. […]

A few weeks back a friend asked me to create a mosaic birthday present for one of his best friends. The only information I had was that he is interested in geo-politics and likes the color yellow. I searched the web for geo-political symbols and got the globe. And since the “yellowest” continent is Africa, […]

Portuguese Influences

About a year ago I finally went on a Portuguese trip that I always wanted to take with one of my oldest friends. I was mesmerized by the painted tiles that were everywhere. As I returned from this trip, I wanted to experiment with something else than mosaic, something more sculpture-like. It was a difficult […]

For some time now, the big, heavy, funky necklaces keep on being fashionable. I always wanted to try making one myself. After having experimented with the beaded lampshade, I also managed to find some time for pampering myself. I started experimenting with different models and let them flow not from my head, but from my […]

A friend has been curious for a while now about how his organization’s logo would look like in mosaic… To thank him for being supportive, I made time to create something I hoped he’d appreciate – the logo of his company and the logo of one of its’ projects in mosaic. Here are the logos: […]

As nature comes to life, we remind ourselves to pamper not only ourselves but also our lovely green companions. This flower pot I actually made for my mum’s house, as she loves the blue/brown combination of colors, but I now find that it finds itself much better in this little tea-time retreat area. And here […]
