She spent 4 years studying oil painting technique in Nicolae Maniu’s studio, one of the best contemporary painters from Romania, the only one that has been represented in the last 20 years by the successful OPERA Gallery in Shanghai, New York and Paris. During her art training time, she had personal & group exhibition, marking a consistent entrance in the Universe of Romanian Arts both in the country capital, Bucharest but also in the city where she lives, Cluj- the capital of Romanian arts where the famous Cluj School of Arts was created and where internationally known painters like Adrian Ghenie were formed. All Alexandra’s exhibitions had a huge success and won the public sympathy due to her courageous and original subjects, always represented in vivid and strong colors.
“I paint because I’m always challenged by new ideas and how I should put them in practice. When I look at a painting, I see a window to another world.
A new world.
A world that unveils itself and invites to a journey beyond the wall where the painting hangs. A world where the stories are the witness of the events, where the trees talk, the wings are free and the colors simplify the forms. A world where the creation is new.”
“I paint because I have too much color in my soul”.
