Sorin Matei

My name is Sorin Matei and I’m a 28 year-old artist. I have a great passion for all visual arts, especially in the digital domain.

I was raised in the city of Oradea/Nagyvárad (Romania), but spent most school vacations in the beautiful Transylvanian countryside at my grandparents village, where time seemed endless. As my ambitions grew, so did the taste for city life. So my inspiration comes from both worlds, the rural past and urban future.

In 2007, after finishing the Faculty of Arts, here in Oradea, I struggled finding a good-paying job using my art skills. If you aren’t a doctor, lawyer, banker or IT Expert, you are nothing in Romania. So I tried for Medicine school, bur after 2 years of study, something pulled me back to my beloved arts.

So, in 2011, I made a promise to myself never giving up again and since then I’ve been living happily as a freelance artist.
