ZOIȚA (Delia Călinescu) was born in 1978 in Fetești, Romania. She now lives and works in Bucharest, Romania. She graduated from The University of Fine Arts in Bucharest, getting her BA in painting in 2006. In 2007 she got her Master’s Degree in design at the The University of Fine Arts in Bucharest

Besides painting, Zoița is a spectacular installation and performance artist. She enjoys the organic, literally inviting it into her work. Charcoal is an often-encountered element, sometimes taking surprise functions such as leaving traces not only on paper or canvas, but also on the artist’s body, a manner in which she fuses with her art.
