" In the first part of his creative activity he executed portraits and landscapes in a realistic-traditional vision, which he later abandoned in favor of a constructivist formula with figurative reminders and humorous nuances.
In 1945 he enrolled at the Institute of Arts in Iasi, where he had as teachers Corneliu Baba and Ion Irimescu, and graduated in 1950. He gave a competition after which he received the Nicolae Grigorescu scholarship of the Romanian Academy, which consisted of one year of studies in Leningrad and one year in Paris.

One of the most controversial paintings was the one in which the couple Elena Ceaușescu and Nicolae Ceaușescu collide a glass of red wine with the ruler Ștefan cel Mare, who takes out of the painting a hand in which he holds a glass. "
