Iulian Cristea’s sculpture is, in fact, a transition from the Concrete art to informal Surrealism, his creations being a combination of the two styles.


Purely non-representational, Cristea’s works are deeply anchored in nature, suggesting organic, biomorphic forms that incite the viewer to identify an existing reference point. His sophisticated sculptures create tactile desires through the alternation of hard & soft matter, but also through opaque / translucent play. Cristea offers the image of a sculptor who has two principles in his art: creating a rhythm in a closed surface or form and applying the chromatic dynamism to the full, static forms. The creative tools of the Cristea sculptures are movement, colour, light and space, all these generating abstract compositions through concrete works.
