Master of the sculpture in stone, Petre Grăjdeanu creates a unique universe of shapes that come from both the abstract and the figurative. His figurative sculpture simplifies and essentializes the anatomic form until it reduces it to massive silhouettes, with a strong carving, displaying a secret humanity, visible only to the artist’s eye.
