"If the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art."
(Leonardo da Vinci)
Doina Popescu is a self-taught artist, currently based in Belgium.
She has been awarded international art prizes and she has exhibited in Europe and United States of America. Her works hang in private collections in many countries and are featured by international art catalogues. One of her artworks is part of the permanent collection of the European Art Museum, Denmark.
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 colourful creations (most of them 3D organic artworks).
Free spirit, she is particularly fond of Japanese paper - acrylic, a combination which allows her to take on the challenge of an unconventional innovative technique: “a new concept of flower painting”, where each flower is a separate painting on burned Japanese paper. The idea became a sensation from the very start, and the viewers appreciated the new proposal with great enthusiasm.
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.
