Ștefan Câlția is a Romanian contemporary painter whose visually striking canvases are known for their oneiric feel. Reimagining through certain symbols the places that shaped him, such as the grandparents’ village, or the Transylvanian landscape, Câlția illustrates precious still lifes, theatrical compositions or paintings with herbs and fields. His works are held in a number of private collections in Europe and in museums such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo, Norway, the HR Giger Museum in Gruyères, Switzerland, the National Museum of Contemporary Art Romania and the Brukenthal Museum in Sibiu, Romania. He was awarded the Grand Cross of the National Order for Faithful Service and the King Michael I Medal for Loyalty.
