With a serious and varied formation, Mac Constantinescu has been an active presence in Romanian culture for half a century. Sculptor, decorator, ceramist, illustrator, restaurateur and teacher, he left behind a vast oeuvre. As a sculptor, Mac Constantinescu sets himself between the architectural sculpture he learned from Bourdelle and the Art Deco type elegance, obvious in many portraits and busts. As a decorator, Mac Constantinescu used at maximum the effects specific for the different materials (stone, wood, terracotta, metal) and techniques in works that, at their time, imposed standards of the artists taste; he is the author of many architectural decorations – reliefs, fronts, fountains. He illustrated the edition of Alexander Marcu from the Divine Comedy (1932). Mostly between 1930 – 1940, he publishes art chronicles, theoretical articles and travelling notes.
