Year of birth
Mihai Grecu was born in 1981. After studying art and cinema in Romania and France, at the Fresnoy Studio of Contemporary Arts, he has been developing a complex personal visual language. By mixing symbolic images with highly metaphorical situations and surreal atmospheres, his works challenge the viewer's perception as well as contemporary imagery, with recurring themes such as environment, war, water and metamorphosis. His films-poems have been shown in numerous film and new media festivals worldwide (Rotterdam, Festival of New Cinema in Montreal, Clermont Ferrand, Videobrasil) and exhibitions ("Dans la nuit, des images" at the Grand Palais in Paris, Mois de la Photographie in Paris, Hengesbach Gallery in Berlin, etc).
