Romanian-born artist Roland Phleps is an artist categorized as Concrete Art. He therefore tries not to depict or abstract what is there, but works from the outset only with geometric-mathematical formulas and elements. Therefore, simple basic geometric shapes such as squares, rectangles, circular shapes, ellipses and parallelograms determine his works. He wants to appeal to the emotional feelings of his viewers.
