Mihail shares a moment with Rafi at St Margaret\'s Hospice
Mihail Gavril is a fascinating man, he is not only an award winning master painter he is an intensely spiritual man who has strong feeling for his fellow man.
Mihail, is a son of breathtaking Bukovina one of northern Romania’s most beautiful regions, he left his village home at twelve years of age to follows his muse. He studied in Suceava and the art faculties of Iasi; however, his undoubted talent went unrecognised by the art establishment under the Ceausescu regime. The fall of communism was liberating and he has travelled Europe seeking inspiration for his work. He has mastered pencil, oil and watercolour using self-taught innovative techniques even including metal plates and leather to portray unique impressions of landscapes, seascapes, buildings, churches and cathedrals. Mihail is one of first of the increasing school of artists who have rediscovered the delight and inspiration of the light and panoramas of Balchik one of the favourite inter war holiday retreat of Queen Marie of Roumania.
His work has been widely exhibited received international acclaim including the Seymour-Oberner Foundation award at the prestigious Swiss Artforum in 2007.
