A figure rests in an ornate, surreal landscape. Flowers decorate the foreground while geometric trees rise out of the purple hill in the distance. The scene blends with the subjects dreams. "I wanted to capture a silent, reflective moment," says Diana. "I was mostly interested to use gold metallic colors and decorative patterns."

Getting to Know Diana Elena

Romanian-born painter Diana Chelaru’s paintings are colorful and contemporary interpretations of human emotion. For Diana, art is a means of communication. “It is how I express my thoughts, hopes, regrets and joys,” she says. Though she gets great pleasure from applying paint to canvas, it is the expression of emotions that she finds to be most important. Diana’s style is influenced by Byzantine mosaics as well as Gustav Klimt’s subject matter and use of decorative patterns within his compositions. Each artwork is created intuitively, resulting in paintings that speak to the soul.
