I was born in the hot summer of '83 in a beautiful and pittoresque town in the heart of Romania, Tirgu Mures. During my childhood, due to my parents job, we moved to Timisoara, a multicultural city where I grew up and formed as an artist. Even from an early age I had expressed my interest in art, being supported by my family and my teachers who guided me. The one who has inspired my love for drawing and graphic arts was especially Professor George Stoia, with whom I studied for almost 8 years, participating and winning many contests. I graduated the Fine Arts School in 2001. In the same year I was admitted at Academy of Art, West University of Timisoara, under the guidance of the esteemed Professor Suzana Fantanariu. I graduated in 2005 and continued my studies in engraving preparing for my dissertation on the expressivity of portraiture. In the same time I became an art teacher at one of the great high schools in the city, where I am currently working. In 2011 I received my masters degree in graphic art. Through these works I present an homage to my mother and my dearest friend, who had passed away during this time. At this moment I am working on my PhD. In parallel I am an active visual artist and a freelancer mainly in mural painting and portraiture.
I enjoy many different styles including expressionism, post impressionism and contemporary. All of these styles influence my work, but do not define my style.
A return to the figurative, the classical values passed through her own personality and genuine vision. Her love and passion for the human being, which she considers to be the quintessence of the universe, her great faith in his power to create beauty and harmony, classifies her as a convinced humanist. Beyond drawing sometimes analytical or sometimes dotted with signs and symbols, she tries and succeeds to render the emotion of the moment. She is inspired by everything that is impressive in terms of spiritual and creative vision. Behind every creation there is always a story, a message, most often a very personal one.
“Through the artistic and philosophical dimensions that she creates, Cristina is opposed to the traditional image of the body, in terms of which it is seen as a solid and clearly defined object. She sees the body in harmony: body - soul - spirit. I confess that for a long time I was not given to see an artistic approach so consistent. "
Professor Vasile Mureşan
"Art is my most sincere excess, is an open window to the mind and soul, is the way to express myself freely and without compromise, perhaps the only place I can really be Me."
