Dacian Andoni was born in Arad, Romania and studied painting at the "George Enescu" Art Academy (now "George Enescu" National University of Arts in Iasi), in the class of professor Adrian Podoleanu. He is a member of the Union of Visual Artists in Romania. He is currently a university professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Western University of Timișoara.

"In his current art collection, Dacian Andoni explores the symbolic and expressive potential of complex and harmonious subjects and visual representations, true centers of positivity in the ancestral archetypal fabric of the world, with his attention focused on the demiurgic condition and vocation of the human being, through transfiguration alchemy of some practices and elements specific to the construction of houses in the traditional Romanian and universal space. To this category of images are added transfigurations of some landscape fragments or "angelic" explorations, perspectives from Above on the anatomy of some localities or a carpet of dry leaves, all of which were received by the artist with the eye of the heart and transposed into pictorial, graphic or photographs of a refined poetics and metaphysical rigor, creations that have the quality of receiving and emitting energy, through the multiple visual stimuli through which the artist generates the power of transposing his own founding concepts and symbols into cosmogonic and poetic representations, equally inspired. Dacian Andoni's images vibrate on the cyclical and alternating rhythm of the attraction of the world and our civilization to the Sky and then to the Earth, in fulfillment of the disturbing and endless fact of Existence." - pointed out Cristian Ungureanu, from "George Enescu" National University of Arts in Iasi.

(...) In the small universe closed between walls, the hortus conclusus cultivated by the painter, the eye that easily encompasses the whole contemplates, searches, compares, chooses, discovers the motif, then transposes it as a fragment in some medium - drawing, photograph or oil painting. The gaze then goes up to the patch of sky on which the clouds roam, illuminating the two workshops, the inner one, another one to be arranged, with the windows to the garden and the perpetual one, open to the sun, the clouds, the city that can barely be guessed beyond the hidden wall of vegetation. (...) - we learn from Doina Mândru, art critic.
The exhibition opened on November 15, can still be visited until December 9, 2022.
