Daniel Neculae completed his studies at the University of Bucharest and obtained a BA in Byzantine Painting from the Faculty of Orthodox Theology. He was greatly influenced by his stay in Mount Athos at the Vatopedi Monastery, where he saw the work of renown 13th c. iconographer Manuel Panselinos. His icons can be seen at the Romanian Patriarchate, Bucharest, in Romanian Orthodox churches and monasteries, as well as in private collections in Europe and the United States.
