Dragoș Burlacu is balancing in wide range of styles and painting techniques from new expressionism, bad art and realism. Dragos Burlacu perfected a manner of visual rendition, by which he simplifies narration and figurativeness in order to capture the emotion of the characters’ relationships. Dragos Burlacu removes the details of portraits in “Royal Couple”, “Erasing Light”, “Unknown” or “The Colour is in the Shadow” so he would not divert the focus from the outlined beauty of the relationships intimately creating themselves beyond the physical presence of the characters.
