Doina Popescu is a self-taught artist born in Bucharest (Romania) in 1970, currently based in Brussels (Belgium).
Nature, human feelings and spirituality are her main sources of inspiration. While her analytical background has its origins in her Mathematics and Communication university studies, her genuine and diversified creativity has grown over years and as of 2016, she expresses visually by painting/collages. Her work is instinctive, colourful and animated by a fecund imagination which starts working inside her even before finishing a work.
Free spirit, she is particularly fond of Japanese paper - acrylic, a combination that allows her to create according to her inspiration, wherever this may lead. She blends various techniques and materials to get the texture for her works: wood, lace, paper, natural gemstones, gold mica flakes, coarse purnice gel etc.
Her creation is about the thrilling nexus with the world outside us…and with the one inside us. She thinks the artist is an explorer and the art is an enlightening journey leading us to our deepest emotions and memories. She also thinks there is much more around us than our eyes can see and the artist has the duty to see beyond boundaries and reveal what hidden is to our senses.
She has exhibited in Europe and United States of America and her works hang in private collections in many European countries. One of her artworks is part of the permanent collection of the European Art Museum, Denmark.
