About Oana


  • Artist Statement

    "I paint to transform my dreams and my imagination into reality. Using acrylics in bright colours I explore the concept of time by creating strange settings and circumstances. With ambiguous imagery, my goal is to inspire questions which entice the viewer to travel beyond the boundaries of the imagination."

         -- Oana Moraru
