Homage to George Bacovia in Bacau

2021 will represent an important year, from a cultural perspective, for my residence city - Bacău, which will mark an historical boundary: 140 years since the birth of the most famous local poet, George Bacovia (born in 1881).
To honor his memory, starting with the first part of 2020, we decided to start making a cartoon-portrait album to symbolize both the human and the poetic side of our great poet.
The cartoon collection will be included in an extended art album called "George Bacovia - Iconography" (Painting, Graphics, Sculpture, Cartoon). This project will be a very important one for the entire Romanian cultural landscape and will represent an additional reason of pride for the inhabitants of the city of Bacău.
I would be more than honored if you could contribute with a cartoon portrait to the compendium I want to make, so I invite you to write together a new tab in the cultural history of my community.
Regarding the deadline for submitting your work, this is May 2020.
In case you will confirm the participation, you can see below a link with some cartoon portraits symbolizing our poet, George Bacovia.
Looking forward for a productive collaboration,
With all due respect, Victor Eugen Mihai – VEM

Please see below some details about our poet, George Bacovia
• Inspired by French symbolist poets, George Bacovia has been considered the father of Romanian symbolism, his work from the second part of life being later described as neo-symbolist, surrealist and seen as a basis for modern Romanian poetry.
• George Bacovia was one of the greatest Romanian poets of all time, his poetry being a matter of study subject at both high school and secondary school.
• After his death, Bacău was nicknamed the “City of Bacovia”.
