Born in Romania, raised in New York City, Serban Ionescu blurs the boundary between sculpture and design into a line one can inhabit. Irrupting primarily from the automatic act of drawing, his loose instinctual line and his vibrant pops of color expand into sculptural collages of constantly shifting scale. Whether in works of design, functional art, sculpture or Architecture, his distinctive style and cartoonish gestures permeate the works with a unique language of anthropomorphic form. These pet like objects and structures become entities that playfully collapse gesture into being. Impulse into experience. For the viewer to hold and for the visitor to explore.

Serban has presented solo shows in New York at R & Company, Safe Gallery, Larrie Gallery, and in Europe with a debut exhibition in Antwerp, Belgium, at Everyday Gallery. His work has been published in New York Times, Wallpaper*, Architectural Digest, Dwell Magazine, New York Magazine and Apartamento. He recently completed his largest scale project  “Chapel for an Apple” an outdoor Architectural folly erected in Hudson, NY and is currently working on a book project with Apartamento.
