painting / drawing 2009 - 2010

When Stefan Constantinescu was young, painting was the medium he used. After he moved to Sweden he also learned how to work with video. His grounding and his aesthetic schooling in painting, however, were acquired at the Academy of Arts in Bucharest. An Infinite Blue, as the series is called, is planned to consist of 22 paintings. As a prototype for the paintings Stefan Constantinescu has used propaganda pictures from the 1960s, produced by the communist power apparatus in Romania. This was a time when there was housing and education for everyone, high-quality research, state-owned restaurants, and healthy habits for the working people.
