A dream-like representation of two reclining figures, one adorned in blue and green squares and the other in red and orange flowers. The two caress each other, their legs intertwined among a blue landscape of geometric flowers. "I used the decorative patterns and the gold color to represent the human body," 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.
