CRITICAL REVIEW


        Debuts with figurative sculpture in the descriptive manner specific for that time. He makes the portraits of famous people, but also works related to the socialist realism. Towards the end of the 1960s, under the growing influence of Brancusi’s sculpture, he rethinks his plastic vocabulary reaching formulations that combine decorative and monumental features.
