Prezentare Demers Artistic

Just like poetry, the painting of Eugen Bratfanof comprises a whole universe of sensitivity and of thought that entirely belongs to our nowadays world. (Dan Grigorescu, critic)
His painting is silent and still just like an effigy, a fragment in a core of compact feeling, a sign, for only a sign can be grasped as a whole and can be unveiled progressively, like a myth. (Marius Tataru, Arta ’94, 1994)
…a first class artistic personality, impressive through the profoundness of the ideational and artistic synthesis, through the touching gravity of his confessions and the generous kindness of his attitude towards the world that he depicts on the canvas. (Ion Parhon, Munca, January 1986)
He does not reproduce faces, but creates expressions, or more exactly, characters. Torments, spasms, convulsions, happiness or pain, light and dark, hope and despair are personified. Most of the images painted by Bratfanof, with an almost photographical rigor, illustrate a real model. But it is a reality seized through deforming lenses. (Corneliu Antim, Luceafarul, February 1986)
He is the author of compositions, in the most extended meaning of the word, but this does not however supposes he paints large canvases. He also is the only Romanian artist who exclusively paints characters and portraits, as instruments of the composition. His work tells about a world, entirely imaginary and still palpable, a universe of the lack of chance. (Tudor Octavian, Romania Literara, November 1991)
