Alex Voinea

Alex Voinea


Alex Voinea was born in Romania in 1973. Leaving Romania after the revolution, he moved to Italy. He now resides in Sitges, Barcelona. His work has been shown in various international art hot spots, including Brussels, Paris, London, Milan, Amsterdam, New York, and Los Angeles.

Fading backgrounds create depth and perspective in his abstract works. Voinea transmits vibrancy and motion through drippings and large sweeping brushstrokes that include various saturated and fluorescent colors that bring movement and fluidity to his paintings. Moments of tension and sublime relief characterize paintings that evoke a thousandth of a second. These undulating strokes slither among one another and vibrate against geometric planes of color.

All artworks by artist



Born in Romania in 1973, Alex Voinea is an artist who currently calls Sitges, Barcelona, his home. He embarked on his artistic journey in Italy, departing from Romania in the aftermath of the revolution. Since those early beginnings, Voinea's creative endeavors have garnered international recognition, with his work being featured in prominent art destinations worldwide, including Brussels, Paris, London, Milan, Amsterdam, New York, and Los Angeles.

Voinea’s abstract works are characterized by fading backgrounds that create depth and perspective. His paintings come alive with vibrancy and motion through drippings and sweeping brushstrokes that feature an array of saturated and fluorescent colors, bringing fluidity to his work. He captures moments of tension and sublime relief, evoking fleeting moments that last only a thousandth of a second.

Voinea’s undulating strokes slither among one another, creating a sense of movement that vibrates against geometrical planes of color. His art is inspired by experiments with paint poured over vibrating surfaces, such as speakers at full volume, allowing him to collaborate with chance and capture the energy of the moment. He uses projections of paint, splashes of pure material, and streams of color in space to express the temporary nature of the world. 

In his work, Voinea captures and freezes an imaginary and expressive big bang of color in an instant. His paintings are a testament to his ability to capture the fleeting nature of life in his art.
