A sculptor of synthesis, being at the age of full artistic maturity, the sculptor and professor Adrian Pârvu, educated in the class of master Vasile Gorduz and, in a certain manner, a follower of his master’s thoughts on sculpture, Pârvu practices an art rooted in tradition, attentive to the suggestions that come from the stylistic and historical stages through which sculpture has gone, being genuinely concerned with the representation of portrait and anatomical shape. Attached to wood and marble, but also interested in the mixtures of materials, the sculptor addresses detail with interest in the massage of the ensemble which is carried out by the fragment. The interest in human condition represents a constant feature of Adrian Pârvu’s art and it can be found especially in the wooden works that have subtle polychromic effects.
The monumentality of Adrian Pârvu’s works, even of the workshop ones, suggests an artist gifted for the public forum art and who understands the cultural and socio-educational purpose of it. The sculptor distinguishes himself through portraits of cultural personalities placed in public spaces. With a prolific activity, thinking through his artistic approach, including it in a mental project that precedes execution, Adrian Pârvu turns out to be a cerebral sculptor, fully responsible for his conduct and for the training role of the sculptor in contemporary society.
