Marius Bercea

Marius Bercea, a painter from the Transylvanian city Cluj, draws inspiration from a personal archive of family photographs, news clippings and the communist-post-communist history. The paintings collage together figures and strange objects that inhabit surreal green landscapes and giant overgrown modernist buildings.
Taking our palette from the green and purple hues often repeated in the series, we set the type in a modified version of Futura Display so that Marius’ name, the show title and info stacked and interlocked much like the structures of the Le Corbusier buildings depicted in the work. The VIP invite economically featured the addition of a second layer of interlocking type printed with a matt purple foil.
