Mirel was colleague with Adrian Ghenie, another established painter outside Romania, Adrian Ghenie was in the last year of University when Mirel started it.

Adrian Ghenie and other Cluj painters (Mircea Suciu, Serban Savu or Marius Bercea) were among the first artists who had access to the art galleries from the West of Europe or North America, helping the Cluj school of painting to become known and helping the new generations of painters like Mirel Vieru to be related to the phenomenon of the figurative painting recognized internationally and to the story of “Cluj School”.
