Arina Gheorghiță

Painter Arina Gheorghiță was born in Cluj in 1973, in a family of painters. She graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts in 1997. She is a member of the Romanian Union of Professional Artists (UAP). In 2004 she got married and moved to Bucharest, where she lives at the moment.

She is in love with painting, having had an impressive number of group and solo shows both in Romania and overseas. Arina is a passionate artist and a passionate, fascinating human being. Arina’s humor is well-known and loved by all her friends. She loves to play and she is also an amazing illustrator. She runs a book illustration club. Besides painting, she is a professor of art and art history at the “Calea Victoriei” Foundation in Bucharest. Many of her works have are in prestigious private collections in Romania, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Dubai, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, USA.

In order to draw essence for my inspiration, I need not look very far: life is my source and also the reality of people, places and ideas. I never get bored. I find life to be full of passion, tension, and freedom. I often say that my painting doesn’t blather, it has content. A real, rich content. A lot of things happen on my canvases: people kiss, dance, fish, swim, read in the shade of a tree… It’s a blend between strength and delicacy, just like life, made up of contrary forces. I am definitely a romantic person. It’s not just the present that plays an active role in the way I depict the world, but also the past, history, and memories. From an ethic, moral perspective, I believe that art is supposed to heal society’s wounds through aesthetic means. Painting is eminently healing.
