Mircea Lacatus: Sculpture, Studio WT2
Mirceau Lacatus is a sculptor who carves timeless figures out of stone. A native of Romania, Mirceau graduated from the National University of Art in Bucharest, then went on to earn his graduate degree at the academy of art in Vienna. In Bucharest he received a strong foundation in classical art, and in Austria Mirceau was educated in Modernist ideas and techniques.
His work fuses these two influences in his sculptures, using classical archetypes that evoke ancient art in a distinct contemporary voice. Mirceau creates his art using the same tools sculptors have used for centuries- a hammer and chisel. Carefully chipping away at massive rocks, Mirceau discovers the beautiful figures hidden in stone.
For those interested in learning from a true master, Mirceau offers drawing and sculpture classes at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment. To learn more about education opportunities, or to just see this fascinating talent at work, call, email, or visit Mircea’s studio, WT2 at Lowe Mill A&E!
