03 Apr Art exibition. Romanian contemporary artists
During the week March 18-22, 2019, two Romanian members of the European Parliament, Mr. Mihai Turcanu and Mr Theodor Stolojan, organized an art exhibition at the EP premises, named “Romanian contemporary artists”. OSI was one of the partners.
The event took place under the auspices of the President of the European Parliament, Mr. Antonio Tajani, pleased to have such events happening at the European Parliament.
Mr. Turcanu opened the event on the evening of March 19, welcoming their guests’ artists. “Tonight we don’t speak about politics, but we speak about art and people expressing their thoughts through art”, said Mr Mihai Turcanu, but also this event is like a “fresh air” and that “we need more events like this if we want to to save art and to show our support to our contemporary artists”.
Guests enjoyed also the presentation speech of Vlad Ionescu, a representative from the Permanent Representation of Romania in Brussels.
Mr. Turcanu did not miss the opportunity to present the artists:
• Mr. Octavian Florescu, who had another exhibition at last year’s Romanian Day event, a surrealist visionary. One of his paintings showed the EU voices synchronizing in a concert of creation are inspiring a new vision for the common future. Each instrument’s sound resonates with a different cultural background, with a different color, but together they create the harmony of a symphony of unity and peace.
The rhythms of this new tone will take our identity to a different level of reality in the multidimensional existence.
The hypercubical face of our new reality becomes a colorful vibration of all our cultural inheritances reunited in a single tune, the symphony of the EU.
• Mrs. Carmen Marin, exhibiting one of her famous works. As commented by Vladmir Bulat, art historian, the work of Carmen Marin is very genuine a and in one go. In fact, what we see there is a projection of a long, rebounding, abandoned and return to opera, which create the illusion of both fresh and expressive. There are intense tones and ardent colors, giving the feeling of the lost Paradise, while the beauty of that realm is in full brilliance, is still kept.
• Mr. Octavian Gheorghe, the President of the Plastic Union Artists in Ialomita, Romania, links in a different way color and thematic, giving a new sense of still life painting, giving philosophical touch of green.
Representatives of the Popular School of Arts from Botosani exhibited some of their art works. This school provided Romania some of the most renowned Romanian painters:
· Professor at the Popular School of Arts, Mr. Victor Hreniuc;
· Mr. Corneliu Dumitriu, who won many national and international contests;
· Mr. Sabin Dumitriu, architect, he uses a more atypical technique.
Last, but not least, Mr Danut Aconstantinesei, who rediscovered his talent just a few years ago, he won last year the biggest national contest in Romania “Nicolae Milord” for the best painting.
