The release of art Teodor Botis was a very special event, held on July 10th, 2014 at Senso Art Gallery in Bucharest. Artists’ friends, art critics and collectors have enjoyed together this great album art, which spans the entire life of the artist Teodor Botis.
The art critics Mircea Deac and Virgil Mocanu, the writer and art collector Radu Georgescu spoke in opening of the event. Teodor Botis told us how he personally got involved in selecting the photos, the paintings and the critical texts for the album. As confessed by the art critic Virgil Mocanu, the release of the album is a special moment, it is the sadness of separation from a remarkable exhibition and also a joy for our personal library, mind and soul.
One of the great friends of the artist, Nikita Stanescu, wrote in 1983: After entering the painting of Teodor Botis and the entry into a universe with a different point of escape, the surprise phenomenon begins to distill the colored spaces proposing a lyrical drama and also assuming a romantic epic, bringing movement of concrete sentiments to the border of abstract ideas. His paintings disturb me and incite me and whenever I see them, I do not get enough of watching them.
