George Crîngașu
(b.1988 in Focșani, Romania) lives and works in Cluj-Napoca. Known for his works in the area of digital collage and installation, which utilize strategies from the information flow of the online environment to juxtapose images that create both tangible and immaterial realities, his practice focuses on data manipulation, with works ranging from installation and video to print. More recently, however, he explores the new possibilities opened by digital materialities and cyber aesthetics in the medium of painting.
