Carmen Belean

Carmen Belean is known for her realistic, multifaceted oil paintings inspired by nature and themes of femininity, loneliness, and aesthetics.

Drawing on a (neo-)expressionist painting discourse, combined with a feminist dialogue and the relationship between nature, art, and beauty, her works contribute to a broader concept of feminine experience and identity.

The Romanian artist graduated in Cluj (Romania) and then took an apprenticeship for four years in a painting studio in Athens (Greece). In 2015 she received her PhD (Magna cum Laude) in Fine Arts/Painting from the University of Art in Cluj-Napoca (Romania).

Since 2004 she has been exhibiting internationally, including in Spain, Italy, Romania, Poland, the Netherlands the Czech Republic, Greece, Korea, and Germany.

She worked on the Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning hand-painting animation “Loving Vincent”.
