Established Romanian artist Adriana Florea Baloiu's artworks are explorations of the human mind and behaviour. Her dynamic and evocative pieces are full of movement and abstract geometric patterns which instantly capture the viewers attention. Both chaotic and controlled her poetic use of color, spongy lines and soft repetitive patterns emphasis the importance of spontaneity within her artistic process. For Adriana, the creation of each unique artwork is an addictive adventure impossible to abandon. Adriana's prize winning artworks have been exhibited extensively and are held by international collecting institutions.
