Painterly Affinities: Cornel Brudaşcu and Alin Bozbiciu

Until Closing Soon
European ArtEast Foundation / London / Art

The painter Cornel Brudaşcu, born in 1937, studied in the small Romanian city of Cluj, graduating in 1962. It was then that he became a mentor to an arts movement known as the Cluj School, composed of young figurative painters. Brudaşcu painted figuratively for a while, but in the 1970s he familiarized himself with American art. He started his own Pop art series, depicting the Western icons he spotted in magazines. Alin Bozbiciu, born in 1989, joined the Cluj School as a young adult and became known for his soft, wide brushstrokes and grisaille palette. By then, Brudaşcu was once again exploring human form, taking inspiration from Old Masters. This exhibition places the two Romanian painters side by side. —E.C.
