Boris Dobre undertook a BA degree, followed by an MA, at the Bucharest National University of Arts, specialising in easel painting. He works as a restorer of paintings, however his personal artistic output has not been exhibited before.

This self-portrait is a reimagining by the artist of how he might appear if one of the ethnic strands of his family tree had been dominant. He says: ‘I am not a real gypsy, but am always on the road. I am as free as I can be. I painted one of my eyes improperly to express the doubt I have in my artistic gift.’
