The Sailor’s Nightmare Of Losing His Cat – Paul Vîrlan

Paul Virlan is a Romanian graphic designer and illustrator. His imagery got our attention since we featured his insane polygonal illustrations and wrote about his visual diary, Lucy, stylishly printed on wood board (in a spot on collaboration with Woodish).

Fuck The Fibonacci Spiral – Photography by Alexandru Laurus

Alexandru Laurus is a Romanian photographer based in Cluj-Napoca. He often convinces strangers to let him photograph them and capture their emotions and unique looks. As he says: “I don’t know if this counts as art and I don’t want to search for definitions. Fuck definitions. Fuck perfect lines. Fuck the Fibonacci spiral. All of this just melts down on her cheeks then trickle down her chin, her neck collar bones and […]

As I said in my previous story, I’m well aware Romanian pornceptualism has nothing to do with the homonym Berlin-based movement, nor is a movement itself. What I’m doing here is trying to identify local artists working at the junction between art and pornography. I recently stumbled upon the work […]

Uncanny Plague-Themed Photoshoot Got Us All Infested

A bunch of Romanian photographers, models and make-up artists gathered last month for a Halloween photoshoot and the results are impossible to handle. Plague-doctor leather masks, chainsaws, shovels, fire, devilish women, everything set in the dark forests of Brasov (Romania), completed the Poe-esque atmosphere that was way beyond the Halloween […]

Redefining Self-Eroticism and Female Nudity – Tabata Roja

Tabata Roja is a 23 years old self-taught photographer based in Mexico City.
