Born in 1962 in Kronstadt, Romania
Lives & works in Erlangen, Germany

His concept for pieces of art is the new romanticism. With atmospheric alienations of reality in line, colour and space he is aiming towards balance in the desire of romanticism.
Creating a morphogenetic abstraction of natural reality (figures, landscape, etc.) forms his topic at his reach for balance in romantic desire, with the archetype of natural legality in de and new compositions.

Christian Lucian Hamsea’s artwork can be found as paintings, sculptures, graphics, public art, photography and object design.
He is combining creativity in unusual media for unique and collection values.
