Melinda Matyas Artist Bio
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
