I was trained, during the years of study, in the academic painting. This did not determine me to hold myself upon the same coordinates. I have studied the abstract painting admiring the abstract expressionist artists, especially being fascinated by Willem de Kooning’s artwork, finding myself in his manner of representation.
Willem de Kooning was influenced by Cubism, adding new elements, through abstraction, disposing of strength and color, he created the Abstract expressionism. What I did, was to take it further, bringing to light the essential spirit - the beauty of divine creation, in a new manner of representation which I named it Realism of Conception.

The manner Realism of Conception open of fundamental nucleus of concrete elements which pulls in the light the spiritual beauty created in the beginning.

In my art, I do not operate with states of the moment, but with the lucid thinking of decryption. I loosen the things lining until I reach the original pit. Through the guiding inspiration, as much as I can, I enter the beautiful and perfect essence of God's creation. From that point, I begin to physically work on canvas. Once, with the empty canvas, the returning path from the essential to the real begins, using colors, shapes and lines...

"Working in his native Transylvanian region of Romania, painter Dan Brad explores colorful and dynamic Abstract expressionism. Occasionally, one of his paintings features a nearly figurative form, while the rest of the image booms with bright hues, energetic movements and strong forms. These abstractions are Brad's focus, as he crafts energy, flow and direction with a build-up of swooping shapes, lines and shades. Playing with this changing, shifting imagery, Brad gives his works titles that reflect their shapes but do not confine meaning.

His abstractions, despite their eclecticism, always organize themselves around shelters, structures and architectural shapes. In so doing, Brad invites us to engage the forms by interpreting and redefining them. Stylized roofs, caves, windows and doorways punctuate his fluid landscapes, but do not confine the viewer. With these spaces and refuges, Brad invites viewers into the works; he carves a space within his art from which we may look back out. Finally, he explores our sense of interiority by portraying his own."

Press Release (2008)

“I feel an unspeakable joy seeing a new generation, of artists of real profundity, rising and growing, whose works bring great satisfaction. The Abstract expressionism is difficult to taste for a large part of the public. What I appreciate in his works is the natural way to allow the viewer (experienced and inexperienced) introducing himself, unnoticeable, into a special world, without constraining him to accept the Realism of Conception – he accepts it in a natural way, understanding and perceiving artist’s intentions and I may say his artistic confidences. This is a great achievement!“
