Dorina Maria Pantea a.k.a Safir
Dorina Pantea born on 11.23.1987 in Deva. Over the years of study in faculty, Ph.D. and MFA studies, I gained the experience and values necessary for any artist, also I consider that the diversity in ideas and concepts is an essential addition to the development and introduction of "innovation" in the Art World: "the image create the most magnificent cocktail of effect and sensation". My creations include traditional painting, figurative or abstract paintings, drawings, and digital art. On the one hand, I give free will to the flow evolution and informal gestures, stimulating disintegrative forces, and on the other hand, clarifying forms of human traits, these wandering spirits are pushed to the limit of a symbolic dialogue with the audience.
"Diversity and originality are two concepts that characterize me. When someone chooses to go on a single road, its vision is blurred and it will not notice anything around itself, this happens in art also, so I chose not to follow only one "art direction", instead I diversified my artistic approach. One thing can be recognized in my work and this is the personal touch of my style, this does not change, it's like a personal and artistic DNA.
Beyond the looking glass, you will see the real me." (SAFIR, Dorina Maria Pantea)
