10th EDITION INTERNATIONAL SALON OF PRESS CARTOONS AND VISUAL SATIRICAL ARTS 2022

To be an Artist is to be part of the wonderful World of Creation, with its good and bad sides. Also, to be fully committed to the responsibility that creative ideas require at all times, facing the daily challenges of life and being at the service of society in search for feasible solutions. Being an Artist involves understanding the complexities and fluctuations of human behavior by exploring, analyzing and revealing salient aspects of the reality of the World – its past, present and future, those privileged moments generated in their environment that touch them deeply as individuals.”

“To be an Artist is to be part of the wonderful World of Creation, with its good and bad sides. Also, to be fully committed to the responsibility that creative ideas require at all times, facing the daily challenges of life and being at the service of society in search for feasible solutions.

Being an Artist involves understanding the complexities and fluctuations of human behaviour by exploring, analysing and revealing salient aspects of the reality of the World – its past, present and future, those privileged moments generated in their environment that touch them deeply as individuals.

In the current global crisis characterised by uncertainty, fear, hopelessness and anxiety, Art continues to function as an antidote, and the Artist’s goal is of paramount importance in grasping the essence of human values.

After all, the Artist’s life is symbiotically linked to his Art: effort, work, pain and suffering co-existing with joy, emotions and sensations, all of them unique to his personal context.

The purpose of the Artist is to propose reflection on the divine and the human, to detect the imperceptible changes associated with our becoming at a time when our horizon is constantly changing.

The Artist conceives Art as an act of rebellion against the sheer insanity of daily events by means of which we, humans, keep demeaning the World: climate change, migration waves, cultural deficiencies, social inequity etc. Living in this World, where things are not what they should be, the Artist has to try hard and find the meaning of living in a way that makes the values of good work fully achievable.

The artist creates from his idealistic trenches, from the factory of his dreams, from his imaginative isolation. Good and bad experiences, joys and sorrows – all mixed up in the laboratory of his mind, triumphs and failures, getting lost and being found anew. “

Popa’S besides being big, he has a big heart. He’s a man who puts heart in his pencils and everything he does. He also has a great joy because he’s the only artist alive able to see his own museum and that’s a splendid thing.”

Giorgio Cegna
High Chancellor Vatican
I like (the) art of Popa’S very much. Popa’S for me is one of the best caricaturists in the world”

Vladimir Kazanevsky
Cartoonist
I have assisted at his prodigious staging when people are amazed how fast and how well he draws their portraits. Popa’S is friend as loyal as he can be, he’s an extraordinary man in many ways words can say”

Tudor Banus
International artist
This exhibition of international stature is one of the best placed in our times to be considered as being influential at a global level”

Antonio Calderon de Jesus
International Association of Art Critics
“I am honored by this prize firstly due to a salon of such prestige and secondly I would like to congratulate Stefan Popa Popa’s who has organised this event at a very high level (…) so far I haven’t seen such a level of presentation at an international salon”

Constantin Ciosu
Cartoonist
Stefan Popa’S is the greatest person with great activity, nobody in the Romanian culture has so great influence in the world culture”

Mikhail Zlatkovsky
Cartoonist
