Hi! I'm Matei and I am a freelance artist established in Austria, Linz.
About 5 years ago, one of my best friends asked me what I would do with the rest of my life if I could do anything. My answer came instantly - I would create art. But then I realized it was more than that, I loved seeing how moved people were by the artworks that I did and I also wanted to contribute with something in this world.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Finally, a number of years and lots of encouragement, from my wife and family, friends and even some of my clients, later; I quit my job in the private military industry and become a freelance artist.
Sometimes I like to make artworks that are complex and full of spiritual symbolism, having their roots in the esoteric knowledge and sometimes I create portraits of actors, singers or private people on commission demand. Movie illustrations are also part of my work.
