About Lucian Niță – KSELEQOQYNQYSHY
Lucian Niță is the author behind the visual project KSELEQOQYNQYSHY (Casele cu Ochi Închiși / Houses with Eyes Closed). The project is an active one and it manifests through personal exhibitions (Bucharest, Varna); the participation at the Street Delivery Festival Bucharest 2018 with an awesome mural; a mural collaboration in Budapest with SUNSHINERS & TUS. Lucian Niță is one of the winners of Un-hidden Bucharest Open Call 2018, creating an outstanding mural graciously hosted by the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, University of Bucharest, Bd. Schitu Măgureanu, nr. 9.
The author illustrates a fantastic world, full of imaginary symbols and characters. KSELEQOQYNQYSHY presses a visually-aware journey, transposed in a ludic manner, offering “viewers” a colourful experience combined with elements of mysticism.
Socotra, the place that captured the artist’s imagination, has been named “the most alien-looking place on earth” due to its rich biodiversity, as it hosts more than 700 extremely rare species of fauna and flora, while up to a third of its plant life is endemic.
