When the artists of the young generation combine the classic languages with the contemporary ones, a representative of an older generation of sculptors, Marcel Voinea, chooses to explore the visual effects of the mixture between painting and sculpture, standing out especially through a plastic innovation, named by him "relief-painting". In his past artistic activity can be encountered numerous monumental works, realized in national and international creation camps, but also works that belong to the public forum statuary: portraits of cultural and political personalities. Marcel Voinea carves and models with both passion and endowment, but he never limits himself to using a single language. His more recent works, those relief-paintings, retained in chromatic terms, are the expression of an exuberant, dynamic vision, capable of creating universes of characters in continuous transformation. Marcel Voinea is a complex artist, with a constantly fertile imagination.
