MIHAI DOCEA

PAINTER AND SCULPTOR                                                                                  

Signs as “ELDOCEA” in his paintings.

Born 29 April 1962 in Bucharest Romania.

Romanian - American citizen.

Graduated from Art High School “Nicolae Tonitza” in 1980 and in 1985 graduated from Art University” Nicolae Grigorescu”, section Sculpture.

Member of the “Union of Fine Arts Romania” since 1990.

Ever since I can remember, art has been my passion and my reason for being...

I started painting when I was about two years old, and no matter what course my life followed, I never gave up my dreams and my passion!

After successfully finishing the Art High School and the Fine Art Institute in Bucharest, Romania, 1985, I participated in a multitude of art shows in Europe and North America.

I believe that imagination is the most beautiful gift that we have, and all I have to do as an artist is to use my imagination in my paintings and sculptures.

My scope in life is to be able to share my visions with the society.
