The Artist

Traian Filip

A child prodigy born of communist oppression during Ceaucescu’s rule, Traian Alexandru Filip earned a Master’s Degree in printmaking from the Grigorescu Institute of Fine Arts in Bucharest. As a painter and etcher, he had one-man shows in Romania, Italy, Sweden and the United States and took part in numerous national and international group exhibitions. Filip was the recipient of numerous awards including the National Union of Fine Arts Award (Romania), the UNICEF Award for Graphic Art, and the Silver Medal of The Society of Illustrators (USA). His master works, hauntingly personal yet universal explorations of the soul, have been acquired for museum and private collections in Romania, the United States, Japan, Europe, and the Vatican. From 1989 to his tragic and premature death in 1993, he lived and worked in the United States.
