A Collection of Myths and Legends. Ion Iancuț and Petre Velicu

By Lavacow Editorial

Lavacow dedicates an entire auction to Ion Iancuț and Petre Velicu, two Romanian artists with a strikingly original visual discourse. Both artists, born in 1950, integrate symbols and archetypal figures into their works, strongly relating in their oeuvre to religion, myths and legends. The characters created by Iancuț are either rendered in motion or viewed from an unexpected angle, but always in the company of symbolic objects, thus conveying both paintings and sculptures a metaphysical aura. Just as Iancuț, Velicu creates mystical, atemporal characters. His silhouettes seem to originate in medieval art, while his landscapes transcend reality, immersing the viewer in surreal, bewitching scenery.
