The funeral of plastic artist Valentina Rusu-Ciobanu will be held on November 5, when it will be a national day of mourning in Moldova. A decree to this effect was signed by President Maia Sandu.

Valentina Rusu-Ciobanu was born in Chisinau on October 28, 1920. She studied in Iasi. In spite of the ideological pressure she felt throughout most of her career, Valentina Rusu Ciobanu managed to preserve the individuality of her artistic discourse and was even subsequently awarded notable governmental distinctions, such as the Republic of Moldova National Award for Literature, Art and Architecture; the honorary title People’s Visual Artist; the Medal of the Republic. She also became an Honorary Citizen of Chisinau and was awarded, by a decree of the Romanian President Klaus Werner Iohannis, the Order of Cultural Merit in the rank of Grand Officer.

The artist mounted multiple exhibitions in the country and abroad, in Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Canada, Syria, Iraq, France. Her works were exhibited at the National Museum of Arts of Moldova that keeps an important collection of the artist’s paintings, at the Exhibitions Center “Constantin Brâncuși”, at the National Library of the Republic of Moldova. Her paintings can be seen in art galleries in many countries.
