Four figures each quietly absorbed in their own surreal reality. Their abstracted bodies nearly merging with the geometry of their surroundings. Warm red, yellow and orange in their expressions contrasts with the cool blue sky around them. "In this work my interest is in exploring the decorative possibilities of painting and transforming the world beyond recognition," says Diana.

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.
