This series of artworks represents young adults, their attitudes and the way they communicate in the modern-day world. It symbolizes the collision between conformity and non-conformity and will feature large-scale linocuts hand-printed on paper.

Romanian-born print maker Florin Hategan explains: “This project is polemical discourse upon the disintegration and eventual disappearance of traditional communities – a process I call Fragmenturalism – the term is derived by combining the words fragmentation and fracture.” Florin has been living in Canada since 1994 and his works have been presented internationally in more than 90 national and international biennial and triennial competitions. Florin has won awards in Canada, US, Serbia, Bulgaria, Taiwan and Japan and is represented in private and public collections in Canada, USA, Europe, Taiwan and Japan.

Florin has a MSc in Civil Engineering and undergraduate degree in Fine Arts and has been working in printmaking and oil painting since 1992. He currently resides and works in Maple, Ontario.
