Elena Parau is a Romanian painter whose works have been widely exhibited on a national level, as well as in Poland, the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Colombia.
She incorporates the beauty she experienced during her travels into her art, including sights, colors, shapes, sounds, and flavors. Through her works, Elena also tries to create a ‘universe of beauty’, femininity, and connection with true self-nature. Her intuitive compositions are made using oils and acrylics.
” The art that I create is meant to heal, because I know how important it is for us to be surrounded by colorful pieces that come with positive messages of harmony, beauty and love.
Inspired to experiment with more colors, I’ve created a series of works that combine my natural instinct to draw swirls with my new interest in abstract representations of flower blossoms. The paintings try to reach a balance between abstract and natural, always through a personal depiction of beauty. I am aware of how I set the brushstrokes into the canvas and what color palettes work together to convey the transitional mood I am trying to express.
My work is process driven. For me, artistic expression is a form of channeling. What’s most important to me in the process is allowing my intuition to take over and letting each piece be a manifestation of my intuitive sense. I’m very much an intuitive painter and I always try to approach my work with a sense of playfulness and fun ”. – Elena Parau
