Darius Hulea, is a Romanian young contemporary artist born in 1987 in Alba Iulia who is specialized in metal sculpture.  He graduated the University of Art and Design from Cluj Napoca, Sculpture section, and in 2012 he become member of the Artists Union. In 2013 he won the price “Grigore Bradea”, a distinction given only to the most talented Romanian sculptures.  His statues are created 100% manually by him using the welding procedure in order to assemble metal wires to represent metal portraits often fragmented and incomplete.  Most of these portraits represent philosophers, writers and historical musicians well known in his country. Darius Hulea captures the spirituality and essence of these great thinkers in his sculptures.

His first major solo exhibition in Bucharest- Romania’s capital city, “Outline”, consisted of metal portraits of people close to Constantin Brancusi, the famous Romanian- French sculptor.
