“Mosaiken means 5 distinct artistic directions but still united through the same conceptual instrumentality like intimacy, personal histories, symbols, critique of spirituality and sin.
Mosaiken talks about the mirage capacity of reality , about the beauty and resorts of fantastic realism, in the context of Romanian contemporary art.

Each artist exhibits a mosaic of works creating a personal world. There are therefore five segments of mosaics. The subjects are distinctive and representative to each one of them.”
