The organizing principle corresponding to Valentin Petridean`s playful creativity is joy. Transgressing themes, times, spaces, different technical environments, he manifests a type of sensitivity of a rare combination between finesse, freshness, and force. The sharp critical spirit coexists with an exuberant imagination, with a refined innocence and with a sense of evolutionary perseverance in a type of multi-faceted, honest, efficient, and affectionate personality. The artist is a gentle young man.
