Claudiu Popescu is born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. He is not the most sociable of people, but his work is all about other humans. Claudiu has an eye for filling the dots between what people hold inside and their surroundings. Maybe that explains why he feels most at ease in settings where people share their solitude with their environment and is drawn to portraying rural communities or people living in remote places. His work finds harmony in the contrast between urban dynamics and disconnected solitudes, reaching for what creates human solidarity in both realms.
