ABOUT


Oana-Singa


In my paintings I create a universe that is vibrant, maximalist, and dramatic and fuses incisive, absurdist, or thought-provoking text like, "Who Am I Talking Here" or "Come on Now, Imitate the Month of February" or "I'm Feeling a Little Peculiar."
Visually, the compositions are like an extravagant carnival where everything looks exciting and inviting—shapes, movement, and a frenzy of intensely vibrant colors all mingle together.
With the text, which comes as the last layer, I capture a slice of the blunt reality or the absurdities, peculiarities, and quirks I observe in my daily encounters.

Making art is not just what you do, it’s who you are.
My passion, spirit, and personality melt together with my paint, and my artworks are an extension of myself – I am fascinated with people, with the huge range of emotions, feelings, and reactions we can feel and express, from profound pain and fragility to silly and entertaining superficiality.
My paintings tell a story about what's inside a human soul.

Born in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania, I moved to the US in 2005, where I currently live, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I've worked in the fashion industry, and I've run an advertising agency; I love theater, and I've traveled to some of the most exotic places in the world.
Trained in Interior Design, I crossed over to fine art in 2013.
