Ion Carchelan is an internationally known painter. Born in the late 1960’s in the Republic of Moldova, Carchelan was educated at The College of Fine Arts Al Plamadeal

Carchelan has been painting since he was a young child. He prefers to remain in the village where he was born.  He is a disciplined artist and has committed to paint each day in the quiet of his studio.

The beauty of his watercolors has a way of drawing you in to the fluid detail of his landscapes.  Most of his inspiration comes from the rural scenes around him in Moldova.  A rustic building, a small bird, the detail of leaves on a tree…the soft colors of the water; his brush conveys solitude and relaxation.
