Daniel Radulescu

·

Daniel Radulescu (b. 01 July 1990) started his early artistic education in Brasov, his hometown, at the Fine Arts High School ¨Hans Mattis Teutsch¨. After graduating in Graphic Design, for the next five years he becomes obsessed with a variety of 3D computer graphic software that helped him develop an excellent depth perception. In 2014 he chooses to make a career shift and use all the acquired knowledge and skills in a more tangible way. Therefore, he decides to pursue an academic career in the Sculpture department of the “National University of Fine Arts” in Bucharest where he starts his apprenticeship under the guidance of the sculptor Adrian Ilfoveanu. By that time, Daniel showed a growing interest in a variety of materials and techniques like stone carving or clay modeling. However, in his evolutionary journey, what really started to hold his attention was the toughness and simultaneously the “fluidity” of the metal. This intriguing material made him want to experiment the welding technology that ultimately allowed Daniel to create powerful and dynamic sculptures. By adding multiple layers of melted steel the outcome is remarkable due to the contrasting textures that blend in a perfect manner. As a result, expressive metal sculptures come to life and make the viewer wonder how these figurative compositions were created.
