Monica Patrui is a professional fine artist, creating and painting for passion: Abstracts & Figuratives.
She feels painting since she was a child. She painted for her colleagues in school and later on, for expressing feelings in a contemporary, modern artwork. Her painting influence comes from the family and she improved herself a lot by self-taught and receive private design and painting classes before and during University years.
She studied under several influencing artists when she was young and my lessons with academic painters, Martha Cunetcaia and Ion Milos, were hugely formative to her experience and skill as an artist.
The expanded space of her paintings is achieved through different acrylic layers, shadows left by smooth brush touches on different surfaces: canvas, wood, cloth paper.
The originality comes from her own textured canvas made with different kinds of ribs, which gives a 3D visual aspect, and her artistic message, as the link between separate spaces: real and fantastic, working towards a common goal.
Her art creations are appreciated to the most prestigious Art Competitions worldwide.
In 2020, she was awarded with a very special Excellence Prize by Arts Circle Foundation for her artwork “Loft”.
Finalist in 2021 in most prestigious Artavita and CAF Art Contests gave her the possibility to professionally develop herself.
In 2022, She was also, rewarded with two Special Recognition Award for “Tropical Leaf” and Excellence Award for “Dream Big”.
