Surrealist paintings


My art, therefore, draws its sap from this universal craving, with a strong touch of femininity and an innocent, primordial sensuality. It whimsically depicts parallel universes, where nature is just a tad different, either raising eyebrows, either raising “whynot?”-s, either “haha”-s. It is sometimes figurative, most of the times surrealist, and every so often all of the above is expressed through portraiture.

So far, my artworks have found their forever homes in private collections in China, Germany, USA, Spain, France, Italy and Romania.

As tools of choice, I love acrylics, but I enjoy experimenting with spray paint and different structure pastes and mediums. Besides all that, I have a very exciting new relationship with digital painting.”

“My first breath of air on this planet was a delicious taste of Black Sea breeze. I was born in a city located on the Romanian seashore, called Constanta and spent most of my youth years in Bucharest.

I graduated from the University of Architecture and Urban Planning of Bucharest in 2011, but actually started my odyssey around the World in 2009, with a study year abroad. My work as architect and interior designer turned me into a nomad. Rambling across continents and very different countries and cultures, meeting a variety of people and opinions, made me gradually transition from architect to visual storyteller.

Although forms of artistic expression have been important parts of my universe ever since I could hold a pencil, my current style and my creative voice are a reflection of my travels and discoveries. Researching people’s needs of comfort and beauty - on a global scale - made me realize that, despite our cultural differences, our souls’ needs are tremendously similar, and they direct us to the surrounding nature - the nourishing, ever-changing and ever-present Mother Earth.
