Maia Oprea (b. 1987, Bucharest, Romania)
I am an young independent fine artist, with a Bachelor's degree in Painting from the Bucharest National University of Arts in Romania. I have had several personal exhibitions up till today, in Romania, Italy and Great Britain, many national and international group shows and my works belong to private and public collections in many countries.
I use very diverse materials, ranging from pencil, charcoal, pastels, tempera, gouache, acrylics, oils, to modelling clay, textiles, wood and metal. Aiming for a spiritual experience, my painting is governed by feeling, asking from the viewer as much intensity of inner life as I submit myself. My art is subordinated to the taste for the figure, which collaborates with the permanent temptation of abstract thinking, rather than denying it.
