I'd like to introduce you my dad, Marin Gruia, a classical and impressionist-inspired, sensitive painter. He started with pastel and then upgraded to oil on canvas. Acrylic did not seem to suit him that much.
As for the subject matter, his artistic feeling is best suited for still nature (flowers) and landscapes. His favorite formats are small, miniatures and average-size paintings. He pays special attention to the framing of his works, even experimenting with creating frame textures himself.
See more about him and his works on his website HERE. He has managed to make a name for himself and to set a certain quota for his works, so as most local art galleries are promoting him and people happen to ask for "a Gruia". I hope there might be some confusion some day, and I might "steal" some of the name-related glory :)
