Sabin Bălașa was a contemporary Romanian painter, writer and director of animation films. His works are described by himself as belonging to Cosmic Romanticism.
Among Bălaşa’s most notable works are several large-scale fresco paintings, such as those decorating the inside of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași, Romania. These 19 murals depict the history and mythology of the Romanian people, expressed through archetypal figures immersed in a romantic and cosmic atmosphere. A few of those paintings open the selection of Bălașa’s work below.
