How many of you found an escape through music? I guess we all have something that keeps us grounded, like a silver lining in every difficult situation. But think about this: what if you could combine what you do everyday with that specific element? I think that people who already do this are actually the ones who we look up to, but it’s never too late to change our perspective. Actually, this is the main subject of today: perception. Let’s dive together into the subject in order to have a better understanding of this process.
Each human being has the capacity to perceive all the things around him in a specific manner. The human brain is meticulously designed to synthetize all the information it receives in order to form a personal perception over outside stimuli. But this overview can be easily changed at any time. The most influential mind changing factor is in fact a different point of view. Imagine being able to affect someone’s perception through your work, being able to send your own thoughts through your everyday business. This is why I am gonna do my best to present Dragoș Dincă and his amazing and stylish work. Suddenly, ‘do what makes you happy’ doesn’t seem so hard to achieve anymore.
Who is Dragoș Dincă?
He is a free spirit, a visionary and an artist in its true meaning. As an enthusiast of electronic music and a Romanian 3D artist, Dragoș found the perfect way to make them both intertwine. And, of course, they’re making him happy every day. But how does someone achieve this level of fulfillment? Well, let me tell you a little about his story, but in order for that to happen we must go back a little. More specifically, twelve years ago.
In 2010, he began working on some projects which soon became his first steps into shaping his future career. Small events, a few opportunities here and there, just enough to get an idea about how his future as an artist could look like. And he pretty much enjoyed it. As soon as his artworks hit the market, he started collaborating with Romanian promoters and easily had a taste of what his true calling actually was. But after nationally recognition, it was just a matter of time until some new foreign partners came along.
Fast forward, the time passed and digital art started to seem too common and ordinary for his advanced skills. That’s when he began experimenting and his artworks came to life. Having so much potential as a creator, it was pretty easy to take a step further and specialize in 3D illustrations. And this is pretty much the final result: a complex graphic designer oriented towards innovation and evolution, with a deep understanding of his true nature and well aware of his roots who transposes his vision through unique animations.
How much ’til we see some of his projects?
Well, just a second! Before talking about some of his digital work, I figured out I should let you know what I really meant by ‘music combined with art’.
If you are one of those who listen to our Romanian artists’ songs, especially the underground part of it, you are most likely familiar with ARTholic. Well, each song has a cover of its own. In this case, Dragoș is the one creating them, just enough to perfectly fit the product’s idea. If you are not, you must take a look and see it for yourself! Now, back to real art we go!

When life meets art, real magic happens. Each one of us has his own thoughts and ideas. But what happens when they start to merge with others’? Do we still feel whole when our mind is shaken to its core? Even if we feel our beliefs shattered, there is still hope for having the empty spaces filled. This is when art comes along. By creating these masterpieces, Dragoș is sending us to a specific moment when we experienced all these feelings. This is basically, the perfect portrayal of how our state of mind felt like. But I guess this is the whole point of it, isn’t it? What do you think?

Even if the art piece shown above seemed pretty complex, take a look at this one! All the details, the combination of colors and the technique are the perfect elements for an illustration to become a masterpiece.
The pharaohs where the rulers of Egypt during pre-Christian times. They were always portrayed as wealthy figures, therefore maybe the golden tone used in this illustration. Moreover, combined with black notes, it creates the most stylish aesthetic, given the divine nature of the main character. It is really one of the few artworks that I fell in love with at first sight. And one other thing, the most common theme in the artist’s work is the exploration of the human being and the perspective we have over some key figures.

We are the prisoners of our own thoughts. As colorful and creative as our mind is, so much dangerously and tricky it can get. We all had that moment when we felt overwhelmed by all that was happening around us. And everybody is overthinking at some point. This is why our mind is our best friend ever and our biggest enemy, both at the same time.
When the artist switched from the usual digital art to animations and artificial intelligence, this is what he had in mind. Making the viewer think about his personal experience. And being able to create art that leads someone to a very specific moment in his life just by looking at it, is a real gift. Well, mission accomplished. But you don’t really need to take my word for it, just check it yourself!
And of course, I’ll leave here the main sources, enough for you to let me know what’s your opinion on this! So, here we go:
