Street Artists pay Homage to Brancusi

We are celebrating Constantin Brâncuși, the patriarch of modern sculpture, who was born on this day (February 19) in 1876. His heritage and memory are being widely honored, and several Romanian and international street artists have contributed over the past few years to the public homage in Romania.

Remember the sculptor’s sayings and enjoy the gallery, as well as the unique approach and vision of the individual street artists in commemorating BRANCUSI!
