Note critice:

“….Vitalie Bessarabian Butescu, whose exhibition dedicated to Bucharest and the 550 years of documentary opened Tuesday even the central hall of the City of Oprescu, the door is always closed and look at Cişmigiu. Entering the park you can see there is, too, one of the images that we propose, oil on canvas, painter, that he did not born in Bucharest, nor in England. Called the "escu" queue, Bessarabia unforgivable about occupations in decades, Butescu Vitaly was born in the town of Stefan Voda, name other dangerous, after Prut. Small plastic art was drawn and the fall of communism on both sides of the river separating the brothers allowed him to come to Romania, learn the art and sacred art. But then he came across Bucharest, ci Clujul. Do stay for years in London and then comes fully Bucharest to tell him, like old times, "My love". Declaration of love means images of Bucharest as one looked not, although I would be tempted to fit the classical artist. It is a company that I turned her over and recommend to take seriously the painter as a gesture of respect for the public and especially to the subject, faţă de acest Bucureşti care are mare nevoie de dragostea şi respectul nostru.” (Marius Tiţa – Bursa 18 seven. 2009)
