Florin Mitroi (1938-2002)
Mitroi created his artistic body of work in solitude, keeping a distance from the art scene, with very discreet public appearances and away from contributions to the socialist ideological propaganda. Reserved personality, retreated from the exhibitional artistic programme of the time, he had an important participation as a teacher at the National University of Arts Bucharest, between 1961 and 2002.
The artists from the ’90 generation appreciate Mitroi as a leading figure for his didactic contribution to their professional artistic training. Furthermore, the fact that Mitroi, as an artist, kept his artworks at a distance from his pupils, had a say in individual artistic developments.
