Dup is one of the most representative artists of his generation, with a well-articulated “personal brand” that combines the so-called postmodern artistic vocabulary with his own artistic explorations.


During the 1980s and ’90s, Dup worked within a neo-expressionist type of figuration, expressed mainly in wood and metal, revealing dramatic visions upon the human condition. In recent years his art has become diversified and enriched, constantly and methodologically, while expanding the range of references and reasons.


Dup is an innovator of sculptural vocabulary, remarkable especially for the variety of “non-artistic” materials (especially common plastic objects) used in the process, his interest in physical and anatomical fragmentation, the use of digital image production procedures and, as a general feature, the appropriation of an extremely important role to color, always transmitted in vivid, strong, almost talkative shades.


In 2004, Dup was awarded the Order of Cultural Merit in the Degree of Knight, and in 2007 he received the Excellence Award of the Union of Visual Artists. In 2012 and 201 the Sculpture Award of the Romanian Union of Artists. 2016 The Brancusi Award of the Romanian Academy, Romanian Cultural Institute, Brancusi Center Targu Jiu.

His works can be found in private collections in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, USA, and Romania.
