“A thirst by the love he bears for her, he seemingly dries out, drained by the lovesick for her. The water pots, drained out too, yearn for the shape of her face, hard to reproduce within her beauty. Last drops of water flow.”
Justin Ghita was born in Romania in a family of painters. His work can be found in private and public art collections and has been seen in numberous exhibitions around the world. As a painter, he denies much of his activity saying that he only transited through reality to Surrealism, transfiguring and accepting the reality’s illusions on his canvas. His latest endeavors reveal his path and his true identity. Organic forms, a palette of vibrant primary colors and the use of optical illusion unites these paintings and gives them their unique signature style. They are teasing, provoking works that force you to reassess your ideas about both art and life. Justin Ghita challenges the viewer beyond the usual contemplation of art and the common sensations or perceptions of the mind. From the array of symbols, inside a surreal world, the story unveils itself through an optical illusion.
