open art magazine & twistedly feature

I'm really just on a 5 minute (turned into half an hour) break, so I thought I should post some of the latest features really quick. To start off, there's Open Art Magazine, that has an article about Street Delivery, featuring some photos from last year's event, where we painted on the Dacia super car. Well this year we'll be there again, with new surprises and projects, so feel free to come check it out. I'll come back with a poster and schedule and so on.

The next feature came unexpectedly from Adela Coc on her blog Twistedly and it was a wonderful surprise indeed. Whenever someone puts the word "inspirational" next to my name, I can not feel anything else but honoured, especially coming from someone who knows what their talking about. So check out her blog, and the wonderful bags and designs she has there and you'll see what I'm talking about.

And so, that's kind of it for now, I'll get back to work and I'll see you soon, live and virtually.

let's get clinical

So I'm back, with a teaser, as I promised. This post's title is not actually the collection's name, but it came to me one day when I was searching for reference material and I thought it was pretty funny. That being said, along with the picture, I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for this next fashion project; I still enjoy it, which is kind of odd to me, since I now can't stand my last one. Some say that's pretty normal and it's called "evolving" - I like that and I think I'll stick with it.

Since this is a part of my MA degree, I'm pretty sure there's going to be a fashion show, I don't really know right now when (probably at the end of June), we're still debating, but I promise (again) I will let you know.

So enjoy this, please fell free to hit me with your opinions, hopes, expectations and so on.

keep calm and keep working

I think it's been quite a while since I just wrote my thoughts or feelings so let's call this a comeback.

Lately I kept myself busy, with or without my will. It's my last year of faculty, my MA degree is just around the corner, so yes, this means a new collection is coming up, I'll give you a teaser soon. Aside being stressed with that, I feel fine (or not). Mentally I'm struggling with the fact that real life is kicking in, I'm officially a grown-up, even though strangers on the street still think I'm 12. It's kind of sad, people start going their own ways, friends are leaving, summer breaks will be just a memory and the main focus now will be just living. But, my friend Andi, has been giving me optimism lessons, so every time the bad stuff happens, I'm trying to see the full side of the glass.

Anyway, I thought of posting a recent painting that I made, it was for a good friend of mine, who helped me in the past, and since then I wanted to make it up to him. It took me quite a while, but I always get things done. I hope he liked it, it was a four piece painting, with a macro wild flower, and a bit of Asian inspired. I'm all about packaging, and I'm sorry I didn't took a picture of the final gift, but it probably only mattered to me.

another exhibition and review

A few days ago I had some kind of an exhibition along with other people from my faculty. We had a project where we had to create some banners that symbolised a part of us, of our creativity, or something... I took a pattern that I will use in my next collection, over-sized it, painted it in really bright fuchsia, turquoise and marine blue, and this is what came out. Well, the exhibition is still in the Unirii Square, if anyone wants to visit it, I hope the wind and the rain from the last couple of days didn't affect the banners too much.

And instead of a review on my Dumbrava Minunata exhibition, I got a really nice feature on Honey Snap Out where Armina and Adela had such lovely words to describe their impressions of my "girls from the walls". So thank you very much!
