My name is Mircea Lacatus, I am a Romanian sculptor with university degrees and a large experiance in clay modeling, molding(plaster, rubber, polyester, artificial stones, bronze). I studied in Bucharest and Vienna and i'm a great portretist. I would love to make portrets for musicians or different personalities of culture. Our day many artists make portrets but very seldom make sculpures out of them.
