Born in 1957 - Romania
Octavian Florescu was born in 1957 in the Southern Romanian town of Craiova. In 1979, he interrupted his university studies in engineering to become a full-time painter. For five years he studied church painting and restoration that gave him the opportunity to learn and master all painting techniques from the ancient fresco to the oil and acrylic. The influence of the Byzantine style is noticeable in the suppleness of the personages.
Since 1989, while in Hungary, he dedicates himself completely to surrealism.
Moving to Canada meant real international recognition. Octavian Florescu won various national and international awards and has been shown and celebrated in several art galleries.
