Lulian Budea

Iulian's work connects so many things that are central to a dual Romanian-American experience. It integrates old-world symbolism with surrealist and expressionist elements, into images with universal appeal. His sketches combine symbols, architectural elements, mythological creatures, and the expressive human figure into a cohesive vision that has as much to teach us about ourselves as it reveals about an invisible part of our world.

Iulian lives and works in New York City and began to study art from an early age, starting with a rigorous academic arts education, and continuing with one of NYC’s most progressive art institutions, The Cooper Union, where he studied on a full scholarship. His work spans sculpture, painting, pen & ink and printmaking and has been exhibited throughout New York City.
