Pavel Grosu (born 1991, Republic of Moldova) lives and works in Cluj Napoca, Romania. His paintings belong to the so-called “School of Cluj”, a young generation of artists who have flourished in the Fabrica de Pensule in Cluj-Napoca. Grosu’s approach is characterized mostly by a preference evocative for figurativeness and vague historical or social references, with an emphasis on technical quality. His paintings often seem surrealistic in their combination of elements and, despite their colourful palette, are often characterised by a latent doomsday atmosphere.
