About the Artist

Melinda’s work is a reflection on society and the continuously changing identity generated by that. In her paintings she weaves together personal and collective memories to address the 21 st century human being.
Her creative process is based on the exploration of colour and the fragmentation of the form creating dynamism and movement in her work.
She is working mostly in oils, as well as in watercolour, gouache, charcoal ,ink.
Melinda is based in London and she got her BA in Painting from the University of Fine Art Cluj, Romania. She has been exhibiting in many countries across Europe
and in the United States.
