Romanian artist ITI accepted our invitation to share his story in his first time interview. Find out exclusive insights about his artistic approach, recent projects and latest exhibitions.
It has been more than one year since you’ve been active as an artist. How did it all begin?
Well, it was an unexpected start for me that opened many new possibilities. So, you can say I never planned to be an artist – I am a self-taught new comer in the field.
It may seem a little ironic, but a few years ago, while I was wandering on the streets of Bucharest or when attending different urban events, I used to collect stickers. Then, one day, my mother, who is a teacher, had a project at school and bought sticker paper. That was the first time I decided to try, I took a pen and let my imagination free. After that, I received some crayons as present, and at that time I felt like a child, a free spirit, stuck in a world of adults who forgot what is really important in life. I decided to remind them. When I finished my first 150 stickers, I selected a few and started sticking them on the streets.
