Trained at the art institute from Bucharest as a sculptress, the daughter of the famous painter Ion Tuculescu, Adina Tuculescu is one of the very active artists, with a rich artistic activity, conducted both in the workshop and in creative camps, even after the emigration to Germany, in seventh decade of the 20th century. At first, she became noticed through her stone sculpture, being attracted to natural shapes, to the representation of organic structures, and then she even experienced working with wood and with polychrome weld metal. She exploited each of those materials according to their expressive possibilities, but also in accordance with the type of approach and with the chosen theme. The figurative stone works received a non-figurative, geometrized replica, found in the wooden sculptures. The polychrome metal was also approached from an abstract-industrial perspective. She realized book design as well, and numerous pastel drawings.
