About artist Mircea Cantor
These stamps have been designed by Mircea Cantor, a French-Romanian born graphic artist.
Mircea Cantor tries to transcript the uncertainty and complexity of life with simple and everyday-life designs. He deploys his art through many media: photography, sculpture, video, drawings and installation work.
He has been invited at the occasion of this anniversary year, to illustrate some productions’ programme booklets: productions chosen to celebrate the Opera history, or some artists that participated to the artistic influence of the institution, such as The Trojans, Il Primo Omicidio, Otello, Swan Lake, Rusalka, Sugimoto/Forsythe, The Amorous Indies.
Artist Sarah Bougault engraved the printing plates for this special stamps collection.
