“I don’t really care about legacies, what I find important is the present and what I’m able to make of it,” says political paintings artist Stefan Doru Moscu.
Stefan Doru Moscu is a Romanian political paintings artist born in 1982. He has a Bachelor’s degree from the Art and Restoration department of the State University of Sibiu, Romania, though he had been an artist long before then.
Art for Stefan started when he was still in kindergarten, a time when he had his first exhibition with the help of his father, an excellent woodcarver. Growing up with a creative father increased his interest in art. This interest in art, however, peaked professionally in 2015.

His paintings use themes from fairytales to challenge existing political, social, and technological standards.
His paintings are based on photographs and memories with realistic figures engaged in activities against dramatic architecture that adds a surreal touch to the compositions.
Aside from being a painter, Stefan is also a sculptor like his father. Though Stefan had guidance from his parents, he gained additional expertise from his wood carving teacher. When it comes to his painting, Stefan credits his art tutor who taught him the construction, colors, and self-correction of a composition.
Exhibitions and collections
He’s had several exhibitions and private art collections in the US, Australia, Monaco, London, UK, and across Europe.
