Ghenadie Sontu’s art is a consolidation of beauty, symbolism, meticulously precise drawing and a unique perspective. On the one hand, his works are calm, depicting still objects in moments of silence. On the other hand they are full of life and expression due to the bold colors, busy textures and deep symbolism they possess. Shontzu is a graduate of the Music, Theatre and Art Academy in Moldova. His works have been exhibited in Israel and around the world, and he has won multiple accolades for his art.
