About me

Since 2008

If you can dream it, I’ll try to make it

I’ve started in 2008 with motorcycle restoration. In my portfolio I have an BSA from 1929, an Ij from 1949, an Mz RT from 1967 with full restoration and tones of other motorcycle elements.

In 2010 I moved to car parts restoration. The jewelry from my portfolio is a Fiat Balilla from 1932.

In 2011 I moved to art and cult objects restoration. A few years I’ve worked with the metal restorer Dan Iliescu at the Nottara Museum.

In 2014 I’ve created my first art object. My first objects were so horrible that I’m ashamed to post pictures.

In 2016 started my real story as an metal artist.

In 2019 I’ve published my first book.

metal poetry b y cristina dinu

As a child I had a penchant for life stories and for this reason I educated myself to become a good listener and a safe in terms of personal information.
In time, I learned that stories are what shape us and help us write our own snippets on the papyrus of life.
I ended up sculpting metal stories and publishing books. I became a storyteller.
I am not the profession I practice, the books I write, the specializations I have, the professions I have practiced, the vehicles I drive or the skills I have. I am like any man on this planet a soul and a mind who want to tell a story, to leave a moral to future generations. I am a human being!

What I do

Restoring & Conserving

Over the years, after thousands of metal works and dozens of works of restoration of objects of worship and art, I learned a variety of techniques, I developed a network of people and workshops and I came to love restoration more than any other activity.

Creation

I create metal art objects from my own imagination or as a comision.
Metal allows me to shape even the craziest ideas into a form that is easy to see and understand.
Art is the most beautiful language of souls.

Write

I write stories for my art, on different online sites, in my books, in my objects etc

I love to convey ideas, emotions, thoughts, problems and events in a story. Either they are written in words, or they are engraved, welded or milled in metal.
