Dan Maciuca


Dan (b. 1979) is one of the strongest emerging artists from the Cluj School of Art, living and working in Cluj Napoca, Romania; the artist perfectly masters the classical painting techniques and is also an associated teacher at the University of Art and Design (Painting Department). A special feature in Dan Maciuca’s practice is the importance given to the abstract dimension, the artist thus differentiating himself by being one of the very few abstract Romanian painters of his generation; it is well known that the practice of art does not have a strong historical background with regard to abstract expression in Eastern European history of art. Thus, Dan Maciuca is one of the most important representatives of the abstract approach of painting in the Eastern European recent production.
