Marcel Chirnoaga (1930 - 2008)


Marcel Chirnoaga (1930 - 2008) was one of the most important contemporary Romanian artists, world-renowned for his original and profound style, although he was mostly a self-taught artist. His choice of subjects - mythological themes, fairytales, legends, animals, fantastic beings, literature - often led to criticism from those who wanted a more "realistic" approach, but Marcel Chirnoaga continued to work this way and enjoyed his success. Most of his large body of work - he created over 3000 compositions - are in the field of graphical arts and engravings, and nowadays even the modest sketches and drawings have impressive prices for a Romanian artist. He preffered to created series of works, with a general theme, such as "Unavoidable Monsters", "Dante's Inferno", "Don Quijote", "Apocalypse", "The Ten Comandments" and many others, each highly successful and popular. He also produced a small number of sculptures, graphics for postal stamps and mural paintings. (SOURCE)
