About the author
Serghei Ghetiu, a Moldovan-born artist who now lives in Klaipėda, Lithuania, has a place of honour in our gallery among the most popular realists.
Although the artist himself says that he does not want to stick to one genre, he is interested in capturing different things on canvas, and lately his work has been dominated by portraits, and most of the time we see women and dancers. Through their poses, facial expressions and looks, the author tries to convey an emotional state, a feeling, what is going on inside a person. In Serghei Ghetiu's work, realism does not mean a cold, mechanical replication of reality at all - on the contrary, it is perfectly suited for capturing the slightest flicker of a face, the smallest nuance. Although the author loves details, he does not play with them or overload his paintings. You will notice that the details are usually mostly in the human face, in the dramatically falling folds of the garment, while for the background, the artist chooses a more expressive, looser technique - this combination not only helps to convey the mood even better, but also does not tire the eye, and helps to bring out the highlights.
This combination of realistic and free painting makes Serghei Ghetiu's work look great in both contemporary and classical interiors.
