a candle for my son!

Radu Aftenie
Sculptor

"What gives life to my art is the challenge to find harmony inside tensions and contrasts; to build the spatial reconciliation of unresting volumes and openings...I try to bring in the expression of an art uniting elements that may otherwise seem incompatible in nature."

Born:  October 2, 1936, Bucharest
