Pavel Bucur

„Educated during a favourable period of our local sculpture schools, in a highly talented generation and exhilarated by full-blooded competition, in a time of aesthetic decanting and coagulation which heralded the reconsidering options of subsequent postmodernity, Pavel Bucur natural fell in with the atmosphere of this new trend, and this guarantee of his native and cultural attributes, which effortlessly but without obvious or experimental distortion placed him in the top position for a new sensitivity and creative vision, which had been dominating the international arena for a few decades.
