ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Mihaela Stancu's art is one of a kind. You can tell from the preparation of her work that she is not only disciplined in her art but focused. Colors and designs swirl around creating a mixture of solid material that one would think they could reach out and touch. Her other works will keep you transfi xed, pulling you in more and more until your imagination is flooded with color and excitement." Derrick Dexter Jones Editor-in-Chief - DéJonDé Magazine
I am a graphic designer with a real love and passion for digital art. Today I experience digital art not only as a passion, but also as a real soul excitement. In other words, digital art is a tangible part of my life and earned the favorite place in my imagination and creativity. I have always been fascinated by graphic design in any form you can see it applied in our lives. Nowadays much of the graphic design is done on computers, therefore I thought the digital design could be a great opportunity to employ my artistic skills. I do my graphics in Photoshop, which I think is one of the greatest software applications around. In a world full of digital graphic images it is hard to be original all the time. In this respect, my everyday struggle is that after creating an image, I may also have the "déjà vu" feeling about my work. In my work I am always looking for the spectacular – the "wow" factor. I do not intend to promote identity forms, as much as I want to show the real spectacle that colors, light, and dark create only by themselves when they are placed together in the same space. These three elements are the main actors of my artwork that can visually impact the eyes of my spectators. I am only the manipulator of these graphic elements and of the tools I am using in the design process. In creating my graphics I pick up an idea and then I try to turn it into art. Everyday I am surrounded by new colors and shapes and I am willing to communicate in a different way with a different approach. Therefore I cannot wait to challenge my imagination.
My earliest work experience was as a Technician Architect, upon graduation from Architecture and Urban Planning College in Bucharest in 1991. In 2005, I received a Desktop Publishing Certificate from Fanshawe College in London,ON. involving the knowledge of software programs that complement very well my work experience and skills.
Sensitivity to the arts along with architectural skills nourishes my creativity.
