Cătălin Velea (born in 1997) is constantly changing his practice, juggling with various non- conventional materials. Through these approaches, expressed either by deconstructing, modelling or recomposing the materials he uses, Cătălin depicts a world populated by ambiguous beings, meant to reveal distant corners of his emotional core. He modifies and assembles figurative elements originated from both the archaic animal area and ordinary life. His artworks reflect the love for animation, fashion and present life, as well as his fascination for antique art, such as therianthropic miniatures and Egyptian funeral crypts.
