Eugen Petri Sculptures
My passion for art started when I was just 8, but in the domain of music. Although I maintained a very strong connection with this branch of the arts (and jazz in particular), I have focused on the vibrations of 3-dimensional surfaces, which to me incorporate music, theatre, architecture, painting and poetry, among many others.

Artist's Statement:
I particularly enjoy the challanges of intercultural communication and bridging background differences through through observation, similarities, metamorphosis and creation. Art critics and collectors who apreciate my art have joined my passion for hidden hints, allusions and epic contrasts.
