Ilie Mihali (b.1976 in Maramures, Romania) graduated in 1999 from the University of Art and Design, Cluj-Napoca and a year later completed the Post-Graduation studies at University of Arts Bucharest. He lives and works in Ipswich, UK.
Collective mind (Acrylic on canvas at the Ipswich Town Hall 2013) is his most recent body of work that aimed to engage and enhance the perception of reality.
An interference of multiple layers and intersected lines are the dominant characteristics of this collection of paintings.
The inspiration is diverse and puzzled like life itself. The visual syntax is often so restricted that the reality is all but denied or reduced to be merely a sensation, often the illusion is much closer to the truth.
