Costel Iacob manifests himself in his art as an enlightened artisan. His sculptures-objects usually come together as ample installations and they resort to the visible universe and the literary sources in well balanced dosages. A fascinating universe made from reality inspired beings become, in his artistic discourse, an irresistible show.
