Mircea Cantor contributing to the 65th anniversary of Romania’s UNESCO membership
Dvir Gallery is happy to announce that Mircea Cantor has contributed to the postage stamps issue Romania, 65 years in the UNESCO. Danube Delta, 30 years in the UNESCO World Heritage
, released on July 27.
The postage stamps feature the fauna of the UNESCO World Heritage site Danube Delta.
The issue comes with a perforated souvenir sheet whose illustrations, depicting in a modern graphic animals and plants from the Danube Delta, are made by the appreciated Romanian-born artist Mircea Cantor. It is for the first time when the artist collaborates in the development of a Romanian postage stamp issue.
Mircea Cantor on the illustrations:
“I wanted to reproduce, through the line of my drawing, the presence and richness of the biodiversity present in the Delta: in water (fish), on land (mammals) and in the air (birds). Basically, the trilogy of the defining elements of the Danube Delta: Water, Earth, Air.” The artist’s vision also reflects “the reference, also through drawing, to three other elements that complement those listed above, namely: the vegetable kingdom (water lily, reed), the animal kingdom (birds, fish) and the human environment (fishermen and human communities with traditions and lifestyle related to the Danube Delta area).”
