If you like surreal paintings there’s a good chance you’ll like Adrian Borda’s work. His oil painted canvases are beautiful and full of details and hidden meanings.
Adrian was born and raised in Romania. He lives in a small city called Reghin. He says it’s a perfect setting to explore your inner world because the city doesn’t really have a social life. He always liked painting but started taking it seriously in high school. He then proceeded to get a degree in Fine Arts.
Ardian’s Instagram account where he showcases his art has raked up 18K followers to date. It might not seem like a lot, but despite that his art is popular and he’s had personal and group exhibitions of his works in Romania and the Netherlands. He also sells his works and quite a few of them now reside n private collections in United States, Hungary, Canada, France, Switzerland, Japan, United Kingdom, Netherland, Belgium, Greece.
1. Sadness Is My Single Fortune
What a beautifully heartbreaking idea. What does it make you think of? Should you treasure every tear you shed and wear it as a badge of honor and a reminder of things that only made you stronger in the long run?
Sometimes we feel so small in a world that’s so big, but Adrian really plays with that idea and reverses the meaning by making planets small enough to wear as jewellery.
3. Nightingale And The Rose
Look into those eyes. You can see so much in them. Who is that person looking back at you?
4. Flowers From Exile
Such a touching and autumnal painting. Is it a story of lost love? Or that nostalgia over a past romance?
5. You’ll Never Melt Again On Me
This could’ve been a simple image of a girl and a snowflake, but the tears in her eyes tell a different story.
Notice the musical instrument in the girl’s hands. And the image of a conductor in her eyes. Does it make you think about the struggles of music school or about the intensity with which music can make us feel?
