Established for many years in Germany, he built an exceptional career, with international attendance at reference exhibitions and in renowned collections.

Ion Camaritru, General Director National Theatre,

"I.L. Caragiale" Bucharest

What event could be more appropriate to usher in, in the new season 2013-2014, the generous exhibitional spaces and foyers of the National Theatre "ILCaragiale", in full metamorphosis and becoming, more than "The painting retrospective" of a known Romanian and European artist of the brush, EMIL CIOCOIU!?

Prof. Dr. Sorin Mircea Oprescu, Mayor of Bucharest

The creation of the Romanian painter Emil Ciocoiu impresses at first contact with the strong emotional vibrations it induces, by the philosophy of colors, ample and subtly affecting the whole being, connecting naturally and spontaneously with the purest cosmic vital energy.

Marcel Philips,

Mayor of Aachen

His world is the universe. Employing cosmic creative power, the artist Emil Ciocoiu reaches for the stars. And stays yet fully grounded. Nature and man, faith and galaxy are his topics, which he expresses through his sophisticated technique. Emil Ciocoiu’s art is colourful, emanates optimism still radiating depth. As does the artist himself.

Marius Tita, Art Critic,

Chief Editor "Romania International",


Emil Ciocoiu painting speaks of man as the Cosmos, of freedom as the supreme vibration, and of Universe birth as the certification date for each of us. The option for the world beyond communism's borders allowed him to fly to destiny fulfilment and, more, of the vision. He climbs and see the world through the eyes of leveling the heights.
