Selected Exhibitions and Awards In competitions organized by the Japan Calligraphic Art Academy in Tokyo and the Japan Calligraphy Center in Los Angeles, Stefan Arteni was awarded the Japan Foreign Affairs Minister's Grand Prize for Calligraphy in 1996 and in 2005, the Silver Award for Kana (linked writing) in 1999, the Consul General of Japan in Los Angeles Grand Prize in 2002.

Arteni's art sprouted in the bitter soils of an East-Central Europe haunted by horrors , in the shadows of hegemonic ideologies, in the cultural climate of borderlands rooted in latency and limological uncertainties. The geographic accident of being intermediate between West and East chance [fatum] is etymologically linked to fate - defines coexistence within the Self of two or more 'here-and-now'. Being somewhere inbetween, leads to simultaneous incorporation in more than one culture, to inner multiplicity, to an interplay of multiple parallel and distributed identity constructions and to the metaphor of form as secure multi-ontology assertion. It is a matter of having to forge a communication which opens to a singular play of the visual, a play that spells out the paradoxicality built into the recomposition of painterly acts by means of parallel transclassic operations which activate and adopt a variety of incongruent formal devices and domains, however strange this may seem in view of the Procustean mindset of the contemporary art world. With an inherent heterarchical outlook and a flâneur's eye for chance, Arteni juxtaposes the 'look from within' and the 'look from without', transcending the horizons of each particular cultural contexture, while non-synchronous tendencies within styles bring about formal mutation. It is a view from the margins, a play with the disruption incited by the boundary entity. It suggests displacement and the ephemeral quality of past and future. Arteni's migrating polycontextural mind with its paradoxical multiplicity of identities crosses multiple borders. The presence of the archaic within the contemporary complements the representation of the present in an allegorical vision of the past. To be sure, it is a paradoxification which manages multiple formal domains, fixing new levels of creative knowledge. Such an aesthetics subtly undergirds much of Arteni's thought. Implicit in this is a de-privileging of logocentrism and metanarratives.

Arteni’s works are in numerous private, public and corporate collections.

…seeing signs, hidden meanings, symbols, in the sufferings, the depressions, the dry periods of everyday life. Seeing them and reading them even if they aren't there; if one sees them, one can build a structure and read a message in the formless flow of things and the monotonous flux of historical facts. Mircea Eliade

The dynamic logic of contradiction appears… as the logic of experience, and at the same time, as the experience of logic. Stéphane Lupasco
Publications and Lecture -Demonstrations Since 1974, Arteni has authored over one-hundred radio broadcasts and published papers on art history, the manufacture of artist's materials, the techniques and materials of painting, and aesthetics (phenomenology and systems theory). He has participated in the Congresses of the International Council of Museums (Committee for Conservation), the Deutsches Farbenzentrum, the Chinese Society for Aesthetics, ICMS8 (Gestes, formes et processus signifiants en musique et semiotique interarts), and in numerous other international Symposia and Conferences. Arteni has also participated in the Conferences of and chaired the I.S.F. Section "Lipids in Art" in the United States, England, and France. In recent years, he has lectured on and demonstrated calligraphy (Greek, Sanskrit, Chinese, and Japanese), and participated in workshops in New York (1995 and 1996) ; the Freeman Center for East Asian Studies at Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT (1998) ; Columbia University, New York (1998) ; St. Mark's Library, General Theological Seminary, New York (1999); the New York Hall of Science, New York (2005); and the QCC Art Gallery –CUNY, New York (2006).

He now concentrates his research on the pictorial fact and procedural switches between formal contextures, the ludic ritual act of the performance event that creates a form-space, art communication as a high-context process, the mereotopology of formal constructs, metacultural sensibility and complexity theory, and the complementarity of painting and calligraphy.

The immediacy of ink splashes spattered on paper creates a constructed void… Zao Wou-Ki

International Art Projects 2004-2005 UNstant (An-instant), a collective work packaged in book form, initiated and made possible by I.D.E.A.C. (Institut d'Esthetique des Arts Contemporains/Universite Paris I - Pantheon-Sorbonne) and C.N.R.S.(Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), France, is about exploring transversal thought and emerging gesture in the visual, audio, and movement mediums. Arteni's intervention (ink works, artist's books and monotypes portfolio) showcases a polycontextural artistic matrix, the mark as chronotopic palimpsest, the total gesture as immediate enstatic experience. An excellent opportunity for presenting UNstant was offered by a conference at the University of Reading, U.K., September 2005, on the theme "Transversalities, crossing disciplines, cultures and identities".

The force of art is the force of truth…a revelation of the simple secret that things are and that they emerge from the unknown world into the light of their pure reality. Jan Patocka

Artist's Books Arteni is co-founder of Sol Invictus Press and the first Western artist to master the art of seal cutting. Arteni’s seals have been favorably compared to Qi Baishi’s. He has also pioneered the art of sumi ink monoprinting and large-size seal cutting, and has explored and expanded the horizon of clay monoprinting.

… I am: and I understand by means of the intellect and by the way of the senses… The beautiful, absolute in itself, becomes embodied only variably and forbearingly. Nicolae Steinhardt General Background Stefan Arteni, who sometimes uses the sobriquet Kyosen (Crazy Hermit), comes

from a multicultural background. He was born in Bucharest and has lived in Rome and New York. Arteni was educated at Romanian elementary and secondary schools in Bucharest, and continued his education at Romanian (Bucharest), Italian (Rome) and United States (New York) universities. He has pursued studies in architecture, art history, fine arts, icon and mural painting, and the restitution and conservation of architectural monuments. He is also proficient in several languages and has worked for the Vatican Radio as redactor and art historian for many years. From the beginning, a translocal multi-identiy web and a recursiveness of identity recreation, a being between and astride cultures and moving across languages and visual contextures set side by side, imply a second-order perspective, an experiential metacultural sensibility Byzantine art freely appropriated and adapted the artistic practices of pagan Rome. There is a wealth of references, borrowings and allusions in works by Pablo Picasso. Sound and music compositions have employed remixing, reuse, quotation and self-quotation, for centuries. More than at any previous time, an artist may have today knowledge and access to works of the past. Charles Esche has commented recently and not entirely sympathetically: "The past has become the future". Redefining the artscape triggers the collage loop in myriad combinations: the use of random procedures, recycling of fragments handed over to memory, objets trouvés, a quarry of fragments mined for visual and associative effect, stylistic collage, commercial imagery, fragments of artworks, random cut or torn paper bits, recycled by means of montage, staging, perspective, foreshortening, are used by Arteni in collage modelli to create conflict and contrast through colliding imagery, through recuperation and alteration, and through an ironic reference to and détournement of the very strategies of the avantgarde 'canon', 'tradition' or 'dogma' - the terms are ambiguous and suggestive of the structural contradiction inherent in the avantgarde concept itself.

Private collection, Rome, Italy

What form of media—in the most general and generic sense of the technology of representation, the genre of mediation—would be appropriate to the modern experience of exile ? Is there a mediatic temporality that could be usefully described as exilic ?... Homi Bhabha All painting is painted under erasure and so is (as it explicitly, self-reflexively proclaims itself) an empty page that is, by that very emptiness, marked. To use a musical analogy, variations on a formal theme or themes, developmental or metamorphic variations and improvised variations are at the core of Arteni's work. It is clear that there is a single signature in Arteni's work, whatever his subject or style - Arteni questions the inherent importance of stylistic consistency and challenges the medium to meet any demand of form. Two or more works may be based on the same hetero-referential construct, which is treated with different variational techniques, that is to say compositionally, harmonically, chromatically, or as tonal variations. The works are characterized by the absence of temporal and geographical markers, which indicates their oneiric quality. The reuse of imagery gives a figurative style an oddly apocalyptic force and bears a similarity to the spirit of the medieval practice of musical contrafacta: the artist combines sources, models, and methods with improvisation and quasirandomness.

Private collection, Sweden

The reduplication of the difference between medium and form in forms that in turn can be used as medium…to turn any possible form into the medium of a possible different form and to consider these forms as a calculus on the codependence of marked and unmarked states Dirk Baecker The collage of visual reference is echoed on the plane of color. Color orchestration provides an ideal complement to Arteni's baroque imagery and playful use of genres iconography. The anachronism of the genres does produce a number of effects such as an odyssey in time and space through the interpenetration of various formal domains, and the reinscription of exilic or diasporic otherness. Private collection U.S.A.-Spain Exile is a hard walk, an intricate tattoo. Daniel Simko

To be otherwhere, to be otherwise… Massimo Campigli Far-Eastern Calligraphy Art Having felt limited by the inadequacy of the Western mainstream avantgarde paradigm and its memetics of instability as well as by the accepted notions premised on the subservient role of painterly discourse, Arteni turned elsewhere for inspiration and stylistic approaches. It is exactly the sense of being an outsider that allows Arteni to observe with detached curiosity. The utter apartness (Abgeschiedenheit) of art amplifies the genealogy of form. Classical revivalist concerns are merged with other traditions. These include the art of the Far East. They also include protoscripts and folk art - where the synchronicity of figurative pictures and abstract motifs may appear in the same sequence, a dual capacity that has been developed in pre-modern cultures throughout the ages - and a variety of visual material re-valued by juxtaposition and viewed as empty signifier.

A New York collector's room dedicated to Arteni's work A few of Arteni’s calligraphies from an U.S.A. private collection


Chang Lien Ch’ing (Chang Yü-chao) | Hidai Tenrai Miyajima Eishi \ Kamijo Shinzan | Yusho Tanaka (Setsuzan) | Stefan Arteni (Geizan) / | Hidai Nankoku

Arteni’s interest in calligraphy began in high school. He studied with Chinese, Korean, and Japanese teachers, and is now pursuing calligraphy with Professor Yusho Tanaka (Setsuzan), Director of the Department of Calligraphy, Faculty of Literature, Daito Bunka University, Tokyo, one of Japan's foremost Living Masters and president of the Nihon Shodo Geijutsu Kyokai (The Japan Calligraphy Art Association) founded by Professor Kamijo Shinzan, a pupil of Miyajima Eishi and one of Japan's top calligraphers Arteni has been awarded in 2005 the highest rank, SHIHAN (Master Teacher), by The Japan Calligraphy Art Association. It is tradition that the teacher gives the student an art name which points to the student's nature. In 2005 Arteni received the special art name GEIZAN [meaning Art Mountain] from Yusho (Setsuzan) Tanaka Sensei. Arteni was given a part of the Teacher's art name, ZAN [meaning Mountain,] as a symbol of spiritual succession. The Association traces its lineage to 1887, when a young Miyajima Eishi crossed the sea to study with Chang Lien Ch'ing, a representative Chinese calligrapher who had succeeded in blending all schools of stelae writing into an unique style. Each generation develops new interpretive strategies and searches deep into the meta-artistic logic of visual forms as such or of graphic systems underlying calligraphic styles. Professor Yusho Tanaka (Setsuzan), for example, has ventured into a creative stylistic retrieval of bamboo and wooden strips inscriptions - form becomes the artist's koan.

Grasp tradition in one hand and grasp life in the other… Shi Lu

Teaching Building upon Hesychast and Zen spirituality, Stefan Arteni also teaches calligraphy: dwelling in art, stilling the mind, enstasis, meditation with the brush.

The paradox is the source, the essence and the meaning. Jean Biès

He who refuses does not repent. Should he be asked again, he would say no again. And yet that no -- the right no -- crushes him for the rest of his life. C.P.Cavafy

Rene's "final" work: towards a global art analysis (draft2) Broadly speaking, calligraphy holds dissimilar social status in Eastern and Western art historical cultures. However, in traditional Asiatic critical art practice, particularly in the Far Eastern literati tradition, there is neither a compelling nor a valid distinction drawn between painting and calligraphy, as such, between image and reflection, idea and word, for that matter, between presentation and representation. What is more, in our present globalizing academic sense at least, painting isn't necessarily even considered "painting" but more an extension of writing (écriture), which covers simultaneously images and letters, and thereby makes such terms as "letter" and "image" remarkably 'irrelevant in stricto senso' (Inaga, 2007: 266). Calligraphy, then, as a facet of writing, and which thereby expects to communicate something, harbours resounding rhetorical implications. And one ponders therefore as to what extent the peripheries of Asia had touched upon the thalassocratic quayage of Imperial Venice (ca. 13-15th cen). However, even in the far earlier sixth-century period, Gregory the Great (d. 604) had already in essence classified the art of painting as an aspect of 'Rhetoric' and thereby subsumed it under 'Word' (Arteni, 2001). Now if the inverse proposal also holds true, then what shall be made of an artist's letters or even incoherently scribbled notes? Would not these items form a part of the artist's corpus of "paintings"? Full-bodied questions start to emerge in regard to our subject's final composition. Question 1: Where from Laubies, East or West? If East wins out, then the following comes to surface. Question 2: What constitutes Rene Laubies's true "final" work?

http://bauddhamata.blogspot.com/ Rene Labuies: an abstract monologue I am currently composing an abstract monograph, not on or about but very near to the life and work of Rene Laubies, accounting for his legacy by calling into play a radical Euro-decentering effusion of cultural hybridity essential to the patterning of his own looming art. Methodological pose: a hermeneutics of 'wayfaring,' flâneur and dap. Reference: Stefan Arteni 2001. "Painting, Image, Likeness." on 22.10.07

I shall return to these questions as soon as possible.

References In October 2007 Arteni received a few emails from Sritantra.Sritantra wrote: “I first came across your online work more than two years ago…My more recent studies in Art History and Criticism have enabled me better to understand and appreciate the scope and penetration of your vision… Your work is valuable particularly as the testament of a philosopher artist…” Arteni, Stefan. 2001. Painting, Image, Likeness. Inaga, Shigemi. 2007 "Is Art History Globalizable? A critical commentary from a far Eastern Point of view," in Elkins (ed.), Is Art History Global?, 2007: 249-279). [In the Far East traditions,] "calligraphy" and "painting" (shûhua/shoga) is a single classification category in the conservation of cultural properties. When the European academic definitions of fine arts was introduced in Japan in the 1880s, it provoked harsh controversy. The question of whether calligraphy whould be included or excluded from the category of fine arts was the point at issue…. The opposition continues today.

mardi 19 août 2008 Zen Transfiguration
Traces d'un passage et réminiscences... Maxime Martinez La Sainte Transfiguration par Stefan Arteni Stefan Arteni quand il veut effectuer ce passage du Zen au Christianisme ne peut que trouver l'Hagiographie (ou iconographie) orthodoxe et il ne peut que s'intéresser à la Prière de Jésus à laquelle il a consacré un album. Parce que comme la calligraphie japonaise ou chinoise, l'Hagiographie est écriture (écriture sainte et écriture du sacré) pas la peinture occidentale dite religieuse, ou à thème religieux. De même que la calligraphie est méditation, l'Hagiographie est prière. De même que la calligraphie et l'art pictural qui en découle, l'Hagiographie orthodoxe sont action et méditation en même temps. Le calligraphe médite avant son art comme l'iconographe prie avant de se mettre au travail. Corps, âme et esprit sont en mouvement sans division, sans séparation dans la réceptivité de l'Indicible, de l'Innommable, dans le paradoxe de l'Irreprésentable, dans la célébration du Sacré. Quand il y a communication entre calligraphie (la belle écriture du Beau) et l'Hagiographie la Lumière n'y perd pas, elle est vue à travers un autre prisme mais c'est toujours la Lumière…

五言古詩 張九齡 感遇其四

江南有丹橘, 經冬猶綠林; 豈伊地氣暖? 自有歲寒心。 可以薦嘉客, 奈何阻重深? 運命惟所遇, 循環不可尋。 徒言樹桃李, 此木豈無陰?
Five-character-ancient-verse Zhang Jiuling ORCHID AND ORANGE II

Here, south of the Yangzi, grows a red orange tree. All winter long its leaves are green, Not because of a warmer soil, But because its' nature is used to the cold. Though it might serve your honourable guests, You leave it here, far below mountain and river. Circumstance governs destiny. Cause and effect are an infinite cycle. You plant your peach-trees and your plums, You forget the shade from this other tree.

The Return of Ulysses 4 (pdf) Autor: Ştefan Arteni Editura: SolInvictus Press Apariţie: 2007

Balcanii si Europa nr.73 din 2007 Români în lume "Scoala Brâncuşi"
În capitala Franţei au avut loc o serie de manifestări, sub egida UNESCO, dar şi a Ligii Culturale pentru Unitatea Românilor de Pretutindeni, cu ocazia împlinirii a 50 de ani de la trecerea în nemurire a lui Constantin Brâncuşi, olteanul din Hobiţa, devenit cetăţean al lumii. La Centrul Artei Contemporane "George Pompidou" din Paris, a fost reconstituit întocmai atelierul său, lăsat în întregime statului francez, după ce autorităţile de la Bucureşti l-au refuzat cu mai bine de 50 de ani în urmă. Cu regretul de a nu fi fost înţeles în ţara natală, marele artist mărturisea pe patul de moarte duhovnicului său că-i pare nespus de rău că va muri neîmpăcat sufleteşte: "fiindcă nu pot să-mi dau sufletul în ţara mea". S-a afirmat pe bună dreptate că nu există stat din Europa, Asia sau America, care să nu fi auzit de românul Brâncuşi, părintele sculpturii moderne. Unul dintre cei mai de seamă elevi ai săi a fost Constantin Antonovici (1911-2002). Acesta a făcut studii la Academia de Arte din Iaşi, specialitatea "sculptor", pe care a terminato în anul 1939. Încă de atunci şi-a propus să ajungă la Paris, la C. Brâncuşi şi să devină discipolul acestuia. O vreme, în anul 1940 a lucrat la Zagreb, în Croaţia, în atelierele marelui sculptor croat I. Mestrovici. În anul 1941, revenind la Zagreb, a fost arestat de Gestapo, internat în Germania şi apoi i s-a fixat domiciliul forţat la Viena, unde a realizat o serie de opere de artă şi a participat la expoziţii de grup. Imediat după război, a primit comenzi de scupturi de la Vatican, Veneţia, Olanda, Montreal şi Washington. În 1947 a ajuns, în sfârşit, la Paris şi a lucrat o vreme în atelierul lui Brâncuşi, cel care a rămas apoi pentru toată viaţa sa "maestrul". După câţiva ani, pleacă peste Ocean, unde s-a stabilit definitiv din 1957. S-a integrat activ în viaţa comunităţii româneşti din New York, care i-a şi pus la dispoziţie un atelier într-una din anexele unei biserici româneşti. A contribuit din plin la popularizarea operei brâncuşiene peste Ocean, dar s-a afirmat şi prin propriile sale lucrări, precum "Bufniţa", "Lebăda", Statuia lui Brâncuşi, Capul lui Eminescu etc. Oarecum în aceeaşi linie a creaţiei sculpturale se situează şi Nică Petre. Născut în 1936, a urmat Universitatea de Artă din Bucureşti, debutând printr-o expoziţie din anul 1968 şi urmând apoi mai multe expoziţii personale în ţară, precum şi peste hotare, în Italia, Grecia etc. În anul 1981, după o scurtă şedere în Italia, a emigrat în Canada, stabilindu-se la Toronto. Sculpturile sale în lemn sau în marmură au devenit cunoscute şi căutate nu numai în patria de adopţie, ci şi în alte ţări, din S.U.A. în Japonia, inclusiv în România. Pe aceeaşi linie se înscrie şi sculptorul George Apostu (1934-1986). După ce se remarcase pe când se afla în România, cu participare la o serie de expoziţii personale, nu numai în ţara sa, ci şi în Franţa, Danemarca, Belgia, Spania, Italia, Grecia, Brazilia, India, s-a stabilit la Paris, unde primăria oraşului i-a atribuit în 1983 un atelier de creaţie. Apostu a fost cel mai reprezentativ dintre sculptorii care, în urmă cu mai multe decenii, au găsit în creaţia populară noi temeiuri în inovarea stilistică, fiind influenţat şi de opera lui Mircea Eliade. Evident că dintre românii împrăştiaţi prin lume s-au remarcat şi alţii în domeniul picturii. Astfel, în Statele Unite, în anul 1948, în Florida, s-a stabilit pictoriţa Arămescu-Anderson Georgeta, după ce făcuse studii în Franţa sau la New York şi după ce lucrase o vreme în studiourile cinematografice din Bucureşti. A organizat peste 30 de expoziţii personale, unde a expus şi fratele său, sculptorul Constantin Arămescu. Stefan Arteni, născut la Bucureşti în anul 1947, a început studii de arhitectură la care a renunţat pentru pictură, stabilindu-se în America şi împletind activitatea sa de pictor cu cea de publicist, cu referire specială, în formă tipărită sau pe calea undelor, la vremurile mai vechi de evoluţie a artelor. Alături de el mai poate fi pomenit pictorul şi arhitectul Anton Baraschi (născut la Bucureşti în 1947, unde a şi terminat Institutul "Nicolae Grigorescu", specializânduse apoi în Germania). În 1970 s-a stabilit la New York, unde şi-a completat studiile şi şi-a cîştigat existenţa ca desenator, creând sute de modele de imprimeuri pentru marea industrie. S-a remarcat şi ca arhitect la câteva din marile companii americane. Tot în America a trăit o vreme, remarcându-se ca sculptor, şi grafician, Eugen Mihăescu, născut în 1937 şi plecat din ţară în 1967, trăind o vreme în Elveţia şi stabilindu-se în Statele Unite, unde a colaborat permanent la cele mai mari publicaţii. După 1990 a revenit în România, devenind membru de onoare al Academiei Române. Mulţi artişti români au desfăşurat activitate remarcabilă în alte ţări, precum Horia Damian sau Sorel în Franţa, Ligia Podorean-Ekström în Suedia, Camilian Demetrescu în Italia, Marcel Iancu în Elveţia şi Israel, Alexandra Nechita, "micuţa Picasso", în S.U.A. etc. Prof. univ. dr.

Metapictorial work is a modern condition of Art. Victor Stoichita Published Works

Rooted in Southeast European, Western and East Asian spirituality, Arteni's reframing of imagic constructs has been prompted by Niklas Luhmann's insight: "Symbols …presuppose the difference between familiar and unfamiliar and…enable the reentry of this difference into the familiar…They are forms of self-reference using the self-reference of form". Arteni's polycontextural stylistic matrix allows room for a heterarchic play and recursive catenation of image structures where painterly time and painterly space - a topology of interlacings - may be envisioned as a polyphonic monologue. Michel Serres remarks: "An object…is…polychronic, multitemporal, and reveals a time that is gathered together, with multiple pleats".

Gallery The Conversion of Saul The letters attributed to him account for almost half of the New Testament’s 27 books, but Paul— originally Saul—of Tarsus didn’t start out a fan of Jesus or his followers. It took a blinding flash of light and a fall to transform this persecutor of Christians into Christianity’s all-time greatest advocate. His famous change of heart on the road to Damascus is depicted in this work by Romanian-born New York painter and master calligrapher Stefan Arteni. The Book of Acts tells how Saul, a tentmaker, oversaw the stoning of the first Christian martyr, Stephen. Fired by a zealous hatred for the followers of Jesus, Saul denounced other Christians and voted for their execution, and then took his show on the road—heading for Damascus to trouble Christians there. On the way, however, he experiences one of the Bible’s great turnabouts: “While he was still on the road and nearing Damascus, suddenly a light from the sky flashed all around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ ‘Tell me, Lord,’ he said, ‘who you are.’ The voice answered, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.’ ... Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could not see” (Acts 9:3–8).

ON THE COVER: Jesus stands on the gates of Hell (marked with a skull) in this Japanese ink and gouache painting of the Anastasis (Resurrection), by contemporary New York artist Stefan Arteni. With his right hand, Jesus pulls Adam up; in his left hand, he holds a scroll. According to early Christian tradition, after Jesus died, he descended into Hell, where he raised the Old Testament heroes from the dead and invited them to join him in heaven. The scroll Jesus holds in images of the descent (also called the Harrowing of Hell) may stem from a medieval tradition that remains alive today in Eastern European folktales. According to these legends (described by David R. Cartlidge in “Dealing with the Devil”), Jesus not only saved Adam, he also tore up the scrolled contract the first man had signed with Satan after the Fall.
