Graduate of the Ion Andreescu Fine Arts Institute, Cluj Napoca, majoring in sculpture, class of 1981, Petru Stoicu has lived his life in Arad. The artist comprehends the sources, the stylistic contaminations and the thematic directions particular to modern sculpture. With a palpable preference for wood as a working material, the sculptor develops abstract, cryptic works, compositions whose titles offer a key to understanding the ideational / conceptual approach. The sources of inspiration, drawn from the folk art field of the naïve expressiveness are completed by a professional education in this domain.
